Review:

The author's prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision ... This is the art that conceals art. I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time (Sunday TELEGRAPH)

A delicious listening experience with fabulously atmospheric music and Adjoa Andoh's outstanding reading (Express)
