Reviews

'My best book of almost all time is THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE by Elizabeth Jenkins ... wonderfully sinister, so enchantingly written and so sad. Everyone should read it' Jilly Cooper 'As smooth and seductive as a bowl of cream' Hilary Mantel 'One of my favourite classics. Elegant and ironic, its continuing charm lies in its quirky and enigmatic love story which becomes more beguiling with each re-reading' Carmen Callil 'Deliciously subtle...A lost world of tweeds and twin-sets...a classic novel of the fifties' DAILY MAIL 'THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE is a timeless, merciless examination of the perils of "femininity", aka female passivity... the narrative grabs the attention with an iron grip.' IRISH TIMES
