Lonely Road Reviews


"The English novel's only down-to-earth romantic... there is a quality of golden light that hangs over his books. That comes, I think, from his sense of order and from his own vast, undemonstrative solicitude" -- John Ezard * Guardian *
"A first-class storyteller, and his narrative is extraordinarily convincing" -- J. B. Priestley
