MEDIA REVIEWS
Brilliant ... So intimate it seems to be written on the skin -- Hilary Mantel, two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize
A sensuous, perplexing book, at once sinister and dignified, grubby and gorgeous, panoramic yet specific ... I don't think I have ever been so thrilled ... This, surely is as far as a novel can go * Independent on Sunday *
The outstanding novelist of our age * Sunday Times *
