Both heart-warming and heart-wrenching, this novel will captivate the senses and make you laugh as well as cry. Brimming with incredible, quirky characters and beautiful, lyrical writing, The Autumn of the Ace is the ideal book for lovers of historical fiction -- Carmen Coetsee * South African *
An epic, touching book about what love can do. It's heartening stuff... If you wish to mark the drawing in of winter evenings with something romantic, adventurous, well researched and engrossing - a story full of life and warmth and also a robust philosophy of love and redemption - then de Bernieres is, as ever, your man. * The Times *
Richly interwoven... [The Autumn of the Ace is] very successful, partly because of the range of different perspectives and partly thanks to De Bernieres deprecating humour and sharp observation -- Vanessa Berridge * UK Press Syndication *
A charming, old-fashioned read - just the novel for a spell in lockdown * Scotsman *
Moving...As in his previous novels, De Bernieres is an exceptional letter writer -- Francesca Angelini * Sunday Times *
