Reviews

Praise for The Vanishing Velazquez

"A sumptuous, impressively erudite effort by Laura Cumming... a gleaming work of someone at the peak of her craft."--Jennifer Senior, The New York Times


Praise for Five Days Gone

"This is an incredible, and incredibly unusual, book about family, secrets, the ruinous sexual shame and hypocrisy of the first half of the English twentieth century. It's one of the best memoirs I have ever read... There is so much about [Five Days Gone] that moves; there is so much about it that educates. It is, and will remain a favorite, to be re-read one day, to be recommended to anyone who will listen."--Nick Hornby, The Believer
