Reviews

"Few writers give me such consistent pleasure" -- Zadie Smith
"She has such great psychological insights into human beings, which is rare. She is one of the best fiction writers writing today" -- Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie
"As discrete entities, Hadley's short stories are intense, miniature novels in themselves; bound together in a novel, they become quietly brilliant, offering an incisive exploration into how life's individuals episodes add up to a meaningful whole." -- Francesca Angelini * Sunday Times *
"Hadley is a writer of exceptional intelligence and skill and, for all the apparent conventionality of her vision, hers is a subtly subversive talent." -- Edmund Gordon * Observer *
"There is something reassuring yet deliciously unexpected about a Tessa Hadley novel." -- Helen Brown * Daily Telegraph *
