Reviews

"An incredibly funny, very upmarket love story with an enchanting heroine and the perfect romantic hero: a tartar with a heart of gold" -- Jilly Cooper
"Another question I've been regularly asked over the past year is what models I had in mind when writing Curious Incident. Was it To Kill a Mockingbird? Was it Catcher in the Rye? In fact, the book most often in my mind was Pride and Prejudice" -- Mark Haddon
"The wit of Jane Austen has for partner the perfection of her taste" * Virginia Woolf *
"I am a great admirer of Jane Austen" -- Alexander McCall Smith
"The best-loved book by our best-loved novelist" * Independent *
