Reviews

"Extraordinary...dazzling... a sprawling, generous, warm-hearted epic of 1970s New York" * Observer *
"Staggering...gloriously ambitious" * Independent on Sunday *
"A novel of head-snapping ambition and heart-stopping power - a novel that attests to its young author's boundless and unflagging talents" * New York Times *
"Exciting, imaginative and perfectly paced" * Daily Telegraph *
"Dickensian, massively entertaining, as close to a great American novel as this century has produced" -- Stephen King
"You're soon zipping through Hallberg's vividly realised New York like a child discovering Hogwarts for the first time" * The Times *
"This book felt to me like a DVD boxset, in that each chapter was so short that I'd find myself reading just one more, just one more, and then find myself still reading an hour later. I love this book: this is definitely for me the best book we've done on the Book Club this year." * Simon Mayo Radio 2 Book Club *
"Once I started Hallberg's addictive soap opera shuttling between uptown and downtown Manhattan, I couldn't stop ... This is The Goldfinch with a safety pin through its beak." -- James Kidd * Independent *
"A tour de force" * Daily Mail *
