Review:

" Spring confirms that [Szalay] is a writer with the whole range of talents... Often outstanding" (Theo Tait Sunday Times)

"A brave and intelligent novel... This is one of those books that leaves you not only with admiration for the novelist, but also with a sense of wonder about the precision of the novel form itself" (Chris Cleave Guardian)

"A texture of truthfulness quite unlike that of any other fiction about London that I know...a very beautifully poised novel" (David Sexton Evening Standard)

"The forensic scrutiny of every aspect of a fledgling relationship, from both points of view, is one of the many delights of Spring... Devastatingly powerful...also extremely funny, in that understated, unexpected way that makes you burst into sudden noise in public places and alarm those around you. Szalay's dialogue is pithy and sharp; his peripheral characters lip-smackingly delicious" (Leyla Sanai Independent on Sunday)

"The lives of two disconsolately unfulfilled people start to blaze, thanks to Szalay's often brutal honesty...formidable ear for dialogue - which transforms the most mundane exchanges into comedy, a la Mike Leigh - and seductively sensuous descriptions" (Siobhan Murphy Metro)

Book Description:

A brilliant novel about money and love, on betting everything on a single throw, by an award-winning young writers, chosen as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 2013.
