"Mordant and entertaining, and wonderfully expansive about a time, a place, and the corrosive effect of selfishness" (Penelope Lively Spectator)
"Hours of bitter-sweet, highly intelligent fun" (Scotsman)
"An enjoyably spiky minuet of human selfishness" (The Times)
"Sly and funny. A deeply pleasurable page-turner" (Observer)
"It is Lurie, not Updike whom people will one day read to discover what our life and times were really like. Dazzling intelligent, witty, perceptive and engaging, she is not to be missed" (New Statesman)
Highly enjoyable novel - witty and subtle - about natural-born-carers (those with a mission to look after other people) and their relationships with natural-born-egotists (those who demand to be cared for).
