'”Love, Again” grips, maddens, depresses and excites the reader from the first page to the last. A. S. Byatt, The Times
'A grand novel, boldly hewn ... An encounter with a magnificent mind and temperament in artistic maturity, capable of turning her equal gaze on George Eliot.’ Independent on Sunday
'I have never seen love's effects and depredations described in more minute detail ... a wholly compelling book, as vigorous and thought-provoking as anything she has ever written.' New Statesman
'By restoring love to the centre of the novel, Lessing has written a book that readers will love; a novel that Stendhal and Colette would have been proud to have written.' Scotsman
