Product description

Review

"A modern saga...she has a fine ear for words and a quick wit for absudities" (The Times)

"An extraordinary imagination - witty, light-footed, realistic, yet with shooting insights into the nature of personality and love" (Isabel Quigley Financial Times)

"Tender, funny, absorbing, idiosyncratic, truthful, heartening... A liberating novel. It deserves a wide readership" (Michael Herbert Literary Review)

"Mordant intelligence; formidable insight into the springs of human self-deception, self-aggrandisement and self-destruction; and an effortless, always vivid style" (Jeffrey Meyers Spectator)

"Beautifully written and constructed... A rich and elegant achievement" (Peter Kemp Listener)
