"Stevenson has written a wonderfully vivid and intelligent book and one long overdue, to boot...This is her first biography and it is a gentle triumph of research and wit...is there nothing Jane Stevenson cannot do?" * Observer *
"Superlative... impressively researched and unerringly well-informed... one can think of half a dozen other British artists whose milieux are in some sense approximate to Edward Burra's and who would benefit from her engrossed and intensely sympathetic treatment" -- D.J. Taylor * TLS *
"Stevenson's triumphant debut as a biographer. She brings a novelist's sensibility to bear on her subject.... Her treatment of this brave, funny and inspiring artist is touching, totally unsentimental and supremely intelligent" * Sunday Times *
"Jane Stevenson makes a strong case for Burra's originality and integrity as an artist; his relentless creativity, always moving on" * Scotsman *
