Reviews

'It's a deft romance, an exercise in camp, and a fable about male pride and its pitfalls ... very readable' The Guardian. 'Elegant, wise, ironic - a gripping and impressive piece of work' Times Literary Supplement. 'There is much to admire about the way Nicoll takes this standard line-up of South American types and fleshes it out ... Short chapters become shorter still as the tension mounts towards a denouement that the first sentence of the book has already announced. It takes confidence to remove this potential element of suspense but the decision pays off ... the pages turn quickly, the plot thickens and rises, and when the book is finally put down, there is little to stop you looking forward to Nicoll's next one' Scottish Review of Books. 'The best Scottish novel I read this year' The Scotsman. 'With The Love and Death of Caterina, Andrew Nicoll triumphantly cleared the second novel hurdle ... there are moments reminiscent of Graham Greene' The Glasgow Herald.
