Editorial Reviews

Review

“An impressive writer with a sharp eye for telling detail and a poet’s ear for a well-turned phrase . . . Gale’s talent is undeniable . . . .engaging.” —The Guardian
 
“What is delightful about Gale’s fiction is that it so warmly and convincingly illuminates ordinary lives and interests.” —The Daily Telegraph
 
“Exerts the unmistakable force of a novelist in the process of discovering a new, strong voice. With this alarming and technically very skillful romance, he is decidedly a man to watch.” —The Mail on Sunday
 
“Flawless. Gale is a master of context and background, flinging wide the perspectives of his dramatic personae with exemplary patience and generosity . . . Triumphantly redemptive.” —The Times Literary Supplement
 
“This is arguably Gale’s most questioning, troublesome work. It amuses, startles and occasionally bewilders. A Sweet Obscurity is worth every minute of your time.” —The Independent
 
“Intriguing and impressive . . . A memorable study of a child forced cruelly, even tragically, to grow up too soon.” —The Sunday Times
 
“Gale is a master of character, and he slips under the skins of his women protagonists with such wit that it’s often hard to believe he’s a man.” —Elle
