"Both intriguing and unsettling... [Faulks's] versatility as a writer is showcased in A Possible Life" * Discover Your History *
"Most easily appreciated as a series of compelling short stories. Poignant, powerful and tender, they are lined by the pain and passion, hope and hardship, accident and design which make up the drama of an individual life" -- John Koski * Mail on Sunday *
"In form and scope, Sebastian Faulks's new novel is an unexpected delight . . . There's little sense of Faulks overreaching with heavily researched detail . . . you trust the narrative whether it is set in a workhouse or a death camp or a recording studio . . . It's rare to see an established writer broaden his range. A tightly written, moving and exciting work of fiction that deserves success, it should thrill established readers as well as win new fans. If you think you know Faulks - or even (and especially) if you haven't enjoyed his previous novels - it's time to look again." * Telegraph *
"Like the albums that Jack and Anya agonise over, A Possible Life is more than the sum of its parts . . . the stories acquire power as resonances between them accrete. Only at the end do you realise you've been won over by their quiet, glinting virtuosity" * The Times *
"An investigation into the nature of shared human experience . . . it does what any good novel should - it unsettles, it moves, and it forces us to question who we are" * Sunday Times *
