"No reader will begin The Comfort of Strangers and fail to finish it; a black magician is at work" * New York Times *
"This compelling, driven novel explores what it might be like to lose yourself forever" * Guardian *
"His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing" * The Times *
"McEwan, that master of the taciturn macabre, so organises his narrative that, without insisting anything, every turn and glimpse is another tightening of the noose" * Observer *
