'A beautiful and engrossing work.'
*The Independent on Sunday*
'Richly accomplished ... Dazzling.'
*The Sunday Times*
'Excellent ... Meticulously researched and vividly imagined, both gripping and thoughtful.'
*The Sunday Telegraph*
'From the [start] we know ourselves to be in the hands of a major novelist ... A compelling narrative, beautifully controlled ... This novel is Barnes at his best.'
'As ever, Barnes serves up a master class in character observation, lavishing attention on the minutiae of personality, the subtle and conflicting impulses that drive men and women. Barnes seems equipped to write with humour and elegance about anything he turns his attention to.'
*The Financial Times*
