Editorial Reviews

Review

“Wonderfully readable . . . A novel as straightforward as it is otherworldly—like reading Iris Murdoch without the puzzles.” —The Independent
 
“Deftly characterized, deeply involving and relevant . . . A memorable achievement.” —The Times (London)
 
“One associates Gale with small, perfectly formed novels written in gossamer-like prose. Here he has attempted something more like a saga in length and scope. . . . Beautifully done . . . Impossible to put down.” —The Daily Telegraph
 
“Brilliant. Vastly readable.” —Marie Claire
 
“[An] extraordinary blockbuster of a novel . . . Much like the late Ivy Compton-Burnett, Gale presents us with a family saga which both questions and defies present day morality. . . . Brutal and witty. His analysis of the family tree is rooted in compassion and insight and expounded resoundingly well.” —Time Out London
 
“A monumental feat of imagination, achingly true and beautiful. I’d be hard pressed to recall the last time a novel so totally captivated me.” —Armistead Maupin
