Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Witch of Exmoor
"A novelist . . . who will have done for late twentieth-century London what Dickens did for Victorian London."-
The New York Times

"Drabble skewers the egotism of her characters and of the society they inhabit with subtle humor and elegant psychological analysis . . . proves herself a master of the art."-
Los Angeles Times

"Part mystery, part fairy tale . . . with a wicked, dead-on wit."-
People

Praise for
The Radiant Way
"The sprawling, dazzling pluralism of her novel is meant to illustrate the glimmering interconnectedness of all humanity."-
The New Yorker

"This novel marks another step in one of the most interesting careers in contemporary letters. . . . It not only engrosses; it works."-
Time

Praise for
A Natural Curiosity
"-A masterly tapestry of characters and events . . . Drabble's fiction has achieved a panoramic vision of contemporary life."-
Chicago Tribune

"It is Drabble's story that beguiles us. Her main characters, successful people in relatively full possession of their lives, can still be surprised, and frequently are."-
The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)
