Reviews

Praise for `Another Country':

`Beautifully delineated ... it is a measure of Joseph's skill that despite being spiky, hopelessly indecisive and eternally dissatisfied, Leela remains such a sympathetic protagonist. The writing throughout is cool and clear, and whilst the overall tone of the novel is hauntingly melancholic, it is also distinguished by a refreshingly abrasive wit' Peter Parker, Sunday Times

`Joseph has an unerring instinct for detail that brings a scene to life ... Her descriptions ... are gorgeously vivid' Sunday Telegraph

`Joseph's writing is rich and original. She can describe silences and what is left unsaid between her characters just as well as she describes what they do and say' Observer

`A readable and entertaining book' Guardian

`Subtle and affecting' Catherine Taylor, Sunday Telegraph Books of the Year

`Joseph's eye for the myriad disappointments of young professional life is excruciatingly accurate, especially in the London section... Joseph is a skilled observer.' Metro

`Joseph has a sharp eye for detail, whether she's writing about the slightly desperate attempts of ex-pats to create a social life, or the quirks of a rapidly changing Bombay' Psychologies Magazine

`Don't Miss' Woman & Home Magazine
