Reviews

Her narrative vibrates with symbolism and portent. Every event, every encounter, every object shimmers with talismanic power -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times *
As a book about the partiality of family history and the peculiar spells of memory, The Book of Colour could hardly be bettered * Observer *
A brilliant fantasy of bizarre and magical imagination -- Mary Wesley * Daily Mail *
