Reviews

The Small Hours excites with refined delights . . . Boyt's economical prose remains elegantly polished, her descriptions of the subtleties of psychotherapy spine-tingling . . . A meaty yet accessible novel possessing great psychological rigour - Sunday Times - Lucy BeresfordBoyt is a compassionate chronicler of the human heart . . . The point of this novel is not whether your dreams succeed or fail, but whether you're still willing to risk having dreams at all. In Harriet Mansfield, Boyt has drawn a character whose moral and emotional courage is both convincing and heartbreaking - Financial Times - Rebecca AbramsThe Small Hours is an absolute gem of a novel: exquisite, diamond-bright and lacerating to the hardest of hearts - Literary Review - Amanda Craig
