Reviews

"Few writers give me such consistent pleasure." * Zadie Smith *
"Tessa Hadley has become one of this country's great contemporary novelists ... possessed of a psychological subtlety reminiscent of Henry James, and an ironic beadiness worthy of Jane Austen" * Guardian *
"Hadley is a writer whose reputation grows with every book... This new collection of short stories reconfirms her remarkable talent... Hadley excels at both genres, brilliant at conveying emotion and with an uncanny ability to get under her character's skin... These stories brim with a keen intelligence and linger in the mind long after you close the book." -- Sebastian Shakespeare * Tatler *
"[It is] lapidary, full of the most gorgeous sentences and brilliant observations." -- Alex Preston * Observer, 2017 Books of the Year *
"Hadley's quiet rise to become one of Britain's best writers is further confirmed by her new collection, Bad Dreams and Other Stories... These well-turned, exceptionally nuanced pieces are solidly evocative of place, period...and sensory detail." -- Phil Baker * Sunday Times *
