Reviews

Briggs has always had the ability to move his readers, but never more powerfully than this. -- Stephen Pritchard * Guardian *
As our memory of pre-Niketown Britain fades, we should be grateful that Raymond Briggs is so brilliantly equipped to remind us of what we used to be, and why. -- Nick Hornby * New York Times *
Ethel & Ernest imparts, as the best novels do, the sense of lived lives. It's not too much to say you come to love these people... Briggs' book earns our tears. Ethel & Ernest is a just about perfect miniature: small in scale, not in spirit. -- Charles Taylor * Salon *
