"Here is a woman of unfathomable depths of meanness and cunning -- a triumph of portraiture, compassionate, witty and assured." ( Time and Tide)

"Distinctly out of the ordinary, School for Love shows remarkable qualities of force and originality." ( Times Literary Supplement)

""Deep, sharp and narrow." That is a phrase which has been applied to some of the finest mathematical analysts: I should like to borrow it to describe Olivia Manning -- This is a remarkable book." ( C. P. Snow)

"In common with the best writers, Olivia Manning has, besides wit, a sympathetic heart and a barometer-like sensitivity to the vagaries of human behaviour" ( Birmingham Post)

From the Publisher:

From the most considerable of our women novelists a compelling portrait of a relationship between a young man and a matriarch.
