A heady combination of love, war and a grand narrative scheme. Burning Paris is a highly topical novel and the historical detail is superb * Literary Review *
Blincoe handles both the period setting and the metafictional fun with flair and assurance. [He] writes pacy prose ... provoking and engaging. * Sam Thompson, Guardian *
Blincoe evokes the turbulence of these terrible months of siege, hunger and bloodshed in Paris exceptionally well ... clever [and] ambitious * Scotsman *
Impressively complex ... Blincoe handles his historical flicker-book deftly and reveals himself as a writer of freshly aphoristic skill. * Scotland on Sunday *
A profound romance about the end of romanticism, juxtaposed with a fractured tale of modern love. * Time Out *
