"She writes beautifully, as always, and the phrase-making is as good as the characterisation...brilliant" * Sunday Telegraph * "A delightful novel" * Scotsman * "These Foolish Things, a kind of less savage version of Kingsley Amis's unbearably funny novel Ending Up. Moggach's prose is markedly more graceful than Agatha Christie's, her moral world is not dissimilar" * The Times * "It is characterisation at which Moggach excels. Her gift is to perceive and describe our confusions about life-and to write with feeling about the continual quest for love and happiness that is part of the human condition" * Sunday Times * "Moggach has served us a treat with this novel. Moving, sincere, funny, terrifying in places, it is a truthful view of old age and what it brings" * Independent on Sunday *
