"[This is] one of those magnificent novels given to us when a great writer is in perfect harmony with the mythic soul of humanity" (Carmen Callil Guardian)

"He is, in the finest sense, a world novelist" ( Guardian)

"A timeless work of art from which no essential element of life has been omitted" ( New York Times Book Review)
