Review:

'A comic novel of subtle distinction... A richly entertaining book, and at times a very moving one' - The Times 'An enormously entertaining novel, with some terrific writing throughout... a fast-moving farce which allows her sideswipes at the foibles of the famous. It is a delicious confection with some marvellous one-liners' - Sunday Telegraph '[A] wonderfully inventive jeu d'esprit... This epic of the Isle of Wight's literary apogee is virtually the perfect summer book. No deck-chair will be complete without it' - Independent 'A rollicking read. It is mischievous, light-hearted and fun, and it certainly made me want to find out more about the Freshwater circle' - Elisa Segrave, The Literary Review
