"The narrative casts a mesmeric spell... intelligent, beautifully written, heartfelt and true, and a great book" * Sunday Times * "I would rather have written Ford Madox Ford's novel than all the books I have written. After reading it a dozen times, I still find a mystery at its heart... an exercise in elegance and a triumph of structure. I am always imitating it and always failing. The prose makes my heart ache with envy" -- Ruth Rendell * Guardian * "An astounding novel" * The Times * "Sometimes the best presents come in small packages...masterful" * Daily Telegraph * "A central figure, artistically and influentially, in the modern movement...a masterpiece of Impressionism, as well as of intricate plotting, technical manipulation and powerful irony" * Guardian *
