Product description

Review

An extraordinarily brave and powerful novel . . . one that pins down the darker aspects of human experience with a precision beyond most writers. (Gerard Woodward (author of Vanishing) Guardian)

Remarkable and surprising . . . outdoes Muriel Spark and Evelyn Waugh in high Catholic comedy . . . The plot is brilliantly articulated: storylines present with effortless and enviable ease,minor characters are a delight . . . Bishop had long been fascinated by the concept of the "impossible moral conundrum", the day of reckoning, and here she has created one that keeps us in suspense to the last moment. She resolves it with a tragic humanity and wit. (Margaret Drabble Observer)

A testament to deft storytelling (Daily Mail)

Bishop relishes coincidence and the unexpected quirks of fate . . . [with] a welcome lightness and sense of irony (Literary Review)

Graceful and haunting (Sunday Mirror)

Praise for UNEXPECTED LESSONS IN LOVE:
It's impossible to recommend the late Bernardine Bishop's wondrous book too highly

(Guardian)

Bishop treats a fearful subject with an extraordinary lightness of touch; her humour and her emotional wisdom make this a delightful and humane novel. (The Times)

This novel, wise, sharp and startlingly frank, distils a lifetime of reflection on the rules of attraction, affection - and family life. From confused youth to the ordeals and confusions of old age, her wry insights delight. (Independent)

A wonderful novel, one of those rare books which leaves the reader with a deeper understanding of the human heart . . . This is an author of exceptional intelligence, subtlety and warmth. Expect to hear the name Bernardine Bishop when the lists for the Costa and Man Booker prizes are complied this year. (Spectator)

This novel should appeal to Joanna Trollope fans . . . Bishop is a fine, intelligent writer, capable of handling moral and philosophical themes with a light touch. (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

From the author of the acclaimed UNEXPECTED LESSONS IN LOVE - 'impossible to recommend more highly' Guardian
