Review quote

'The book is brilliant, dammit...a modern-day epic' Sunday Express. 'A slow luxurious read, distinguished by its grace and generosity' Daily Mail. 'You keep finding more and more satisfaction in the unshowy craft, the unique vision of this writer who can tell you hard truths, hopefully' Alice Munro. 'The finest novel to be published in some years in our country...Its grace, its generosity, its humanity are present on each of its pages' Carol Shields.show more
