Reviews

The adrenalin still flows in lively extracts from 11 years of journals * The Times *
A beautiful unfolding of a story, told in deceptively simple prose but with a great power to move * Sunday Times *
A marvellous book. Even the title Pondlife is spot-on: unlaboured, light and right. But it has no business to be as invigorating and absorbing - its success is against the odds * Observer *
