Product description


"The effect might echo Proust, or Alain-Fournier; the tone is completely distinctive" (Roy Foster Observer)

"Long matured, an exceptional malt of the mind... David Thomson's book is one that can be returned to time and time again to refresh with its vision and the brilliance of its writing" (Herald)

"His writing combines a feel for the "this-worldness" of his characters' lives with an understanding of the "otherworldness" they keep a place for in their consciousness. Which is a way of saying that the stylistic achievement depends upon a deep imaginative sympathy" (Guardian)

"A brilliantly original mix of love story, memoir and history" (Brian Moore)

Book Description

'Thomson has a Proust-like memory for detail and everything seems to fit the place and time' - Financial Times
