Wildly inventive * New York Times *
There are passages in the novel that have a heartbreaking beauty... Rain is a talented writer * Washington Post *
This book captures the gaiety and tumult of a troubled age. But it is ultimately a novel of friendship, of love, and of lives. * Irish Examiner *
David Rain is far too young to be writing this exquisitely... a story about the universal search for love and for self... There isn't so much an echo of Scott Fitzgerald in these pages as a gentle background refrain * The Bookbag *
Rain's worthy novel is a touching, often searing tale of friendship, betrayal and love. His flawed characters are staggering beneath the weight of the past, which they carry like burdens even beyond the book's chilling, operatic conclusion. * Bookpage *
Mesmerising... The Heat of the Sun is by turns wildly colourful and straitlaced, witty and rueful, reserved and operatic -- Andrew Solomon, author of 'The Noonday Demon' and 'Far From the Tree'
Romantic tragedy inside a story of great theatrical invention and whimsy. The result is wholly original and a lot of fun. Read it and the twentieth century may never look the same to you again -- John Burnham Schwartz, author of 'Reservation Road' and 'The Commoner'
