"'Fringe of Leaves' was my favourite White novel until I read this. Incredible work of fiction with one of the most intriguing protagonists ever created. A truly beautiful work of art - amazing stuff."
"Also known as 'Carol' by Patricia Highsmith. A fantastic author and one of her finest works, this is an incredibly beautiful love story. So well written, I didn't eat or sleep until I had finished it. Check out her macabre short stories too!"
"An absolutely incredible book. You can see how it will end (with a sense of dread), but the writing is so good you are compelled to follow the protagonist through to the very, very end. Onne of the best books I have ever read."
"As a lapsed Catholic, I thought I would hate this book. I couldn't have been more wrong - this book is amazing. It really got under my skin and made me think. Heartbreaking stuff, please, please read this book."
"A real slap in the face - this is a wonderful book with one of the most incredible protagonists ever committed to paper. Left me feeling angry, righteous and powerful - everyone should read this book."
"A wonderful selection of essays from the pen of the fabulous Maeve Brennan. New York of the 50s and 60s is brought to life in the most beautiful way from this little known columnist of The New Yorker. Fantastic!"
