Reviews

"Pitch-perfect sentence by pitch-perfect sentence, Foulds weaves a quiet but harrowing tale of obsession that takes the reader into the characters' tragic downward spiral - Dream Sequence is as good a novel as I have read in a while." -- Lawrence Osborne, author of Beautiful Animals
"Incisively well-written and alluringly readable... This prose is truly poetic, being concise, not impasto... This novel moves like a thriller... A terrific book about the realities and delusion of fame distorting the way we live now: not to be missed." * Evening Standard *
"Adam Foulds is the real deal... it's the details of the writing itself - the precision of the word selection combined with the precision of the observation - that make for such enjoyable reading." -- Edward Docx * Guardian *
"This mordantly clever story about fame, fantasy and narcissism... is deliciously funny... Foulds is a very fine writer." -- Johanna Thomas-Corr * Observer *
"An exquisitely concocted, riveting account of artistic ambition and unrequited love... Foulds is proving himself to be a very versatile writer of intelligence and charm." * Spectator *
"Everyone loves a good page-turner full of aspirational scene-setting, but few literary novelists dare to try it... [Dream Sequence] is a sexy, celeby drama... just like The Great Gatsby, this novel billows around you like a queasy dream, its grand scenery and awful characters combining to take us out of the real world and into another, oddly shimmering version of it." -- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
"A nuanced, original and sharply observed study of fame and power... [a] spare and beautifully written novel." -- Stephanie Cross * Daily Mail *
"Foulds's observations are spot-on and his prose is delicious sharp." * Economist, 1843 *
"Funny, dramatic and poignant. The final five pages of the novel resolve in a masterly poetic unification of suspense and feeling. Adam Foulds... has won many literary awards and this new work deserves to win another." -- Lindsay Duguid * Tablet *
"Absorbing and beautifully written, Foulds' novel is particularly illuminating on the actor's craft and the nature of fame." -- Anthony Gardner * Mail on Sunday *
