Review

"Extraordinary and intriguing" (SADIE JONES author of The Outcast)

"The Pure Gold Baby is an unexpected gift from a great author. How do we treat the child who walks among us in a different way than most? In Margaret Drabble's hands the answer is with a depth of empathy few master. Fortunately for us, Drabble has spent a lifetime doing just that in exquisitely written prose" (ALICE SEBOLD author of The Lovely Bones)

"Moving and meditative" (MEG WOLITZER New Yorker)

"Superb ... a richly complex narrative voice achieves a choric magnificence hardly equalled in her earlier work" (Stevie Davies Independent)

"Involving and unexpectedly rich . . . a magnificent novel that confirms Drabble's status as a national treasure" (Daily Mail)

"Subtle . . . The cadences of the prose, the kind of language used, the words that are chosen, echo the passing of the years . . . absorbing" (Kirsty Gunn Financial Times)

"Its prose has an almost folkloric quality . . . Characters, plotlines and themes swirl and proliferate" (Alex Clark Observer)

"Drabble's intelligence and compassion make it a hugely rewarding read" (Mail on Sunday)

"A unique and profoundly stirring book" (Elizabeth Day Observer)

"Written with compassion and bathed in a poignant glow" (Stylist)

Book Description

Margaret Drabble returns with a powerful novel of unbreakable love, enduring friendships and a society changing forever
