Reviews

‘Rarely have I read a novel so flawlessly written.’ Spectator

‘Very beautiful, highly intelligent, enjoyable and original.’ Sunday Times

‘Perfect, a “tour de force”…accessible in the way Thomas Mann’s “Death in Venice” or D.M. Thomas’s “The White Hotel” are accessible…dealing successfully with the strong themes of erotic love and death.’ New York Times Book Review

‘A spectacular success.’ Edmund White
