9780006550600: Swann

From the Back Cover:

"Deft, funny, poignant, surprising, and beautifully shaped."
MARGARET ATWOOD

"A brilliant literary mystery. Read it."
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

"A very good novel, alive in every sense: formally ingenious and inventive, strikingly evocative of place, of character, of the world of things, capable of both comedy and tenderness, and above all beautifully written."
LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS

"I am more than happy to have discovered Carol Shields. Her original and incisive voice deserves to be widely heard."
ANITA BROOKNER

"Written with elaborate grace… an excellent read."
FINANCIAL TIMES
