"A tall tale and a serious work of literature...its reputation suggests that one "should" read it, and so far I would have to agree" -- Nigel Rodenhurst Times Higher Education "'Louis de Bernieres is in the direct line that runs through Dickens and Evelyn Waugh... he has only to look into his world, one senses, for it to rush into reality, colours and touch and taste'" Evening Standard "'An emotional, funny, stunning novel which swings with wide smoothnes s between joy and bleakness, personal lives and history... it's lyrical and angry, satirical and earnest'" Observer "'A master of haunted realism. His best novel yet. He deals with death and love and tragedy...This is a novel to be prized'" Daily Mail
