"A brilliant book... Jonathan Lee is one of those rare, agile writers who can take your breath away." -- Catherine O'Flynn, author of What Was Lost "Exquisitely and surprisingly written...[Joy] proves that Lee is a significant talent and that his future work should be well worth awaiting." * Observer * "Outstanding ... a forensic portrayal of despair that shows Lee to be an exceptional, brave prose stylist... Funny and humane, Joy is an enormously impressive piece of storytelling." -- Tom Williams * Literary Review * "Jonathan Lee's second novel, Joy (William Heinemann), charts the final day in the life of a high-flying young lawyer. Lee writes with extraordinary vividness, with prose so sharply defined it takes your breath away." -- Elizabeth Day * Observer (Books of the Year 2012) * "With its supple prose, ingenious structure, wit and slow-burn sympathy, Joy is a sly miracle of a novel." -- A.D. Miller
