Temples of Delight Reviews

'One of the funniest books I've read in a long time' Time Out 'Temples of Delight is so readable, so full of incidental pleasures and curiosities, that one could easily overlook its terrifying honesty' Philip Hensher, Guardian 'Her characters are larger than life ... Temples of Delight shows how grief is implicit in joy. It makes you laugh and it moves you' Sunday Times 'Steel yourself for a baroque romance of untimely deaths, orphan babes, stolen novels, canny nuns and dark, forceful lovers' Company
