Grenville makes awkward atmospheres and fumbling encounters wonderfully vivid. Read it and cringe (The Times)

From these two reticent characters, besieged by two lifetimes of regret, doubt and dismay, Grenville manufactures an extraordinary comedy of manners, made all more powerful by her own reticence as a writer (Guardian)

Outrageously entertaining (Daily Mail)

Mined throughout with little pockets of danger and depth (Guardian)

A truly amazing writer (Rosie Boycott, chair of the Orange Prize jury)

An honest and compelling celebration of imperfection (Observer)

A funny and touching romance (Daily Express)

Being the only book voted for the Orange Prize shortlist by both the official judging panel, always an all-female affair, and a shadow panel of men sitting for the first time, was testament to The Idea of Perfection's universal appeal (Australian News)

Grenville has created a unique exploration of human weaknesses and how combining these weaknesses can make a strength (Irish Independent)

A funny, off-beat love story (Daily Mail)

Book Description:
