“For some reason, the very negative thoughts which she had during that interview with the rich-stockbroker woman in Kensington did not remain with her...

“A hypnotic storyteller who leaves in his wake a trail of curiosity and unease.”
“It’s the sort of novel that ought to be more common than it is. Full of old-fashioned, raucous pleasure: a real rattler of an entertainment.”
–Philip Hensher, Spectator
“A big, broad, sweeping book, as disturbing as it is funny.”
“He grapples with the concerns both of the heart and the intellect and it is grippingly readable.”
–Times Literary Supplement
