Review quote

"Singularly beautiful and moving" -- Evelyn Waugh "One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody's language" * William Faulkner * "In a class by himself...the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety" -- William Golding "Devastating study of the collision of different kinds of faith, betrayal and commitment" * The Times * "This novel had a great effect on my life... This is not a sentimental book, or one full of the kindness of God, in that both the man and the woman suffer the pain of loss and feel the heat of hell. This novel persuaded me to become a Catholic" -- Beryl Bainbridge * Guardian *
