The Virgin in the Garden is a wonderfully erudite entertainment in which enlightenment and sexuality, Elizabethan drama and contemporary comedy, intersect richly and unpredictably.Review:
"Comic, well plotted, immensely touching... Gaudy excitement and splendour" ( The Times)
"One to be reckoned with. It cannot be glibly praised or readily dismissed; it is, massively, there, and demands serious consideration" ( Financial Times)
"An ambitious novel [whose] narrative everywhere displays knowledge and intelligence" ( Times Literary Supplement)
