"A masterpiece...a terrific novel, humming with ideas, knowing
asides, shafts of sunlight, shouts of laughter and moments of
almost unbearable tragedy" -- Toby Clements * Sunday Telegraph
"Compelling...profoundly moving" -- Leyla Sanai * The Independent on Sunday *
"A pleasure from start to finish...WHERE MY HEART USED TO BEAT is that rare book, a page-turning read that also has a significant intellectual and emotional charge." -- Alexander Larman * Sunday Express *
"There is everything here: love, loss, death, war, history, memory, ideas, travel, friendship, rivalry, chance - and sex. It comes in an immaculately crafted package that continues an ingenious dual-timeline with plot twists that serve the reader with the exact impression of what it might be to live the life of the novel's gimlet-eyed and engaging narrator, Dr Robert Hendricks" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Combining as it does the cultural narrative of a complex century forsaken by God and certainty, a serious investigation into the vulnerability of the human mind and an old-fashioned - in the best sense - story of love and war, this is an ambitious, demanding and profoundly melancholy book" * Guardian *
