Reviews

A compelling tale beautifully told, Mr Mac & Me is as close to a perfect novel as anything I've read in a long time. I loved every page of it * Ann Patchett, author of Bel Canto *
I was utterly absorbed in the language and the story and the world of it ... You know how it is when a writer draws into a place and you begin to feel it is more substantial than the one around you? That is how this book was for me. I truly loved it * Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry *
`I loved and admired Mr Mac and Me more than I can say' * Francis Wyndham *
Attending to Esther Freud's still, truthful voice becomes not only a pleasure but a necessity * Jonathan Coe *
Freud has a precious and remarkable gift * The Times *
A superbly gifted writer * New York Times Book Review *
The best that art can be: full of exploration, full of intuition, full of generosity - and full of love * Julie Myerson *
