‘An outstanding novel which confirms Glaister’s command of the domestic and the bizarre’
– Independent on Sunday

‘Enormously enjoyable’
– Nick Hornby

‘Not just dark and mysterious but also emotionally satisfying’
– Times Literary Supplement

‘This was my first Lesley Glaister novel and I was unprepared for the marvellous, easy style of her honeyed prose. Evocations of England in the late 1950’s combined with a disparate cast of characters make this a charming book of humour, poignancy and bleak reality. I am now preparing to read everything else she has ever written!’
