"Wonderful, lyrical ... Triumphant ... A beautiful, moving and elegiac lament on the human condition ... Hypnotic." The Times "Brilliantly realised ... a reminder of how rich the written language can still be" Independent "Prepare to be seduced... Beguiles from the opening sentence ...This little novel is a wonder" Irish Times "An expert piece of historical and psychological archaeology, which unpicks the intricacies of ordinary life while also asking the terrifying, unanswerable, yet endlessly fascinating questions that haunt us all" Observer "A dense, elegiac and richly imagined piece of remembering...Life-affirming and visceral in its detail." Daily Mail
