What we're reading on holiday. * The Times *
Sebastian Faulks' latest novel is beautifully written, shot through with a sense of the frailty of love that is at times reminiscent of William Faulkner's The Wild Palms... This is a superb novel * Spectator *
A 5* masterpiece that I devoured in a day * New Books Magazine *
