MEDIA REVIEWS
A heart-breaker . . . it has the kind of indefinably powerful impact of The Great Gatsby -- Salley Vickers * Observer *
'Moving and memorable, full of yearning and melancholy ... reading it is like taking a literary minibreak. -- Fiona Wilson * The Times *
A poignant coming-of-age tale, drenched in disillusionment. The gap between hope and reality, art and ordinary life, has been explored in many other novels, but rarely with the unaffected simplicity of Madonna in a Fur Coat. -- William Armstrong * Times Literary Supplement *
A gorgeously melancholic romance . . . a cautionary tale certain to beguile -- Eileen Battersby * Irish Times *
A tale of young love and disenchantment, of missed opportunities and passion's elusive, flickering flame . . . reminiscent of Turgenev's First Love, with a hero every bit as gauche, and a twist every bit as bitter -- Toby Lichtig * Financial Times *
Recreates a vanished era and dramatises a doomed relationship, and does so with verve, depth and poignancy. A miniature masterpiece. -- Malcolm Forbes * The National *
