It is rare to come across something done with so light a touch but such precision...it's spot on (LITERARY REVIEW)
Delightful...Webb writes with...suppressed joy in his creations and this joy quickly transfers itself to the reader. (SUNDAY TIMES)
Rewarding for those who appreciate subtlety and wit. (TIME OUT)
A masterpiece of poignancy and bittersweet romance. Let's hope we don't have to wait another 25 years for its successor. (DAILY MAIL)

Brit artist escapes collapsed love affair to regain equilibrium in a New England town. Webb's dialogue has not been bettered for sure-eared parody of English as she is spoke both sides of the Atlantic. I assume CW is American, and he lives in England, which explains his utter skill.
It's slated for a movie, and what a killer it'll make, and what plum parts all round.
A brilliant touch is to have sketches of the people that the central character draws and they are perfect. The temptation is to turn to the end of the chapter to see what 'Fred' (Webb's partner) has come up with. Every one a winner.
I've given it as a gift to so many loved ones and with one accord they've phoned to thank and congratulate on my unerring choice.
Of course, what else from the pen of 'The Graduate'? But this really *is* special and no one will be disappointed.
