'A comic novel of subtle distinction... A richly entertaining book, and at times a very moving one' The Times 'An enormously entertaining novel, with some terrific writing throughout... a fast-moving farce which allows her sideswipes at the foibles of the famous. It is a delicious confection with some marvellous one-liners' Sunday Telegraph '[A] wonderfully inventive jeu d'esprit... This epic of the Isle of Wight's literary apogee is virtually the perfect summer book. No deck-chair will be complete without it' Independent 'An enormously entertaining novel, with terrific writing throughout.' Sunday Telegraph 'A rollicking read. It is mischievous, light-hearted and fun' Literary Review 'Terrific... 'Tennyson's Gift' is witty, surprising, oddly compassionate and hugely assured.' Sunday Times
