Tender is the Night Reviews


"A tragedy backlist by beauty."
"-- Daily Express

""For Fitzgerald desolation is a precondition of the lyrical. Hence the most distinctive impression of Tender: A beautiful novel about failure."
"-- Independent

""It is one of those books that you read and feel a shift... the story is told so poetically and eloquently. It is one of those books that you read and think: if I could only remember that sentence -- it is so beautiful."
"--" Sam Taylor-Wood
