Editorial Reviews


“Splendidly realized Cornish moorland setting . . . Gale writes . . . with delicacy, perception and a rare ferocious charm.” —The Guardian
“A book with claws. It has a soft surface—a story set in sloping Cornish countryside, touching on love, families and forgiveness, delivered in a gentle, straightforward prose—but from time to time it catches you unawares. Scratch the surface, suggests Gale, and you draw blood.” —The Times (London)
“Gale’s novels always catch one a little short. . . . While no less light-footed than its predecessors, The Cat Sanctuary has darker intimations. . . . The tone is gentle rather than militant, as though the crushing masculinity the women have experienced might find some small antidote in the tender mercies of his style.” —The Observer
“Gale is a charmingly idiosyncratic writer who could not write a cliché if he tried. Spiced with mischievous irony, this engrossing story contains some interesting aperçus on the process of novel writing.” —The DailyTelegraph
“Like Gale’s previous novels, it’s an elegantly menacing, enjoyable read. . . . A deep and moving book; highly recommended.” —New Woman
“A dark tale of loss, sex and mistrust . . . A sensitive, thoughtful novel with a conclusion that is both unsettling and consistent.” —Time Out London
“Full of Freudian nightmares which threaten to overwhelm the ordinary, everyday landscape . . . Gale’s writing is marvelously entertaining, and there is a compelling sense of biting deep into the core of the bitter truth.” —Cosmopolitan
