Reviews

'Richly entertaining ... beautifully realised and very funny ... A book [which] has the rare quality of being funny without being silly, serious without being solemn, and powerfully moving without being either sentimental or coercive' Guardian

'This is a magisterial novel, complex, sophisticated, filled with literary play ... Impressive stuff from a serious talent' Daily Mail

'A sprawling family saga of moneyed New York, written in highly wrought prose replete with Updikean flourishes. We immediately identify Gilbert with Franzen and his realist forebears ... There is much to admire in "& Sons", it is ambitious and often beautiful' Observer

'Hugely energetic ... engrossing and superbly done ... His novel's 400-plus pages zip by in a rush of accessible, highbrowish pleasure ... [An] intelligent, enthralling novel' Sunday Times

'I was floored by the sparkle and brilliance ... superbly written, wonderfully entertaining and often outrageously funny' Times

'[An] elegant, witty second novel ... Gilbert's stylistic gifts are beyond question, and the novel is rich in well-turned phrases ... The novel is also very funny ... At the heart of the book is a reunion of the Dyers, a scene as closely observed as anything in Jonathan Franzen's "The Corrections" ... This is a terrific social comedy' Sunday Telegraph, Seven

'A singularly brilliant novel ... [which] marks David Gilbert out as a writer of exceptional talent' Literary Review

'A breathtaking work of a sweep that we rarely see over here tackling themes at the very heart of existence itself ... a tour de force ... This is a huge new talent on the scene. Greatness awaits' Sunday Express
