About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'Sebastian Hampson is that rare thing: a writer of ideas who is also compulsively readable.' -- Nicholas Edlin, author of The Widow's Daughter 'Sebastian Hampson...writes with an assurance that belies his years. A perceptive and thoughtful love story in the tradition of Brief Encounter, inspired by Hampson's travels in Europe, the novel is immediately engrossing. The reader is swept along by the fluidity of the writing.' Weekend Australian 'Hampson's prose superbly renders the atmosphere of summer in Biarritz and winter in Paris. His self-absorbed Lawrence is very believable, and some of the ancillary characters are also well-portrayed. This is a remarkable debut novel, and it will be interesting to see what Hampson comes up with next.' BookMooch 'This book will charm and engage.' Books & Publishing 'Lyrical and elegant.' Waikato Times 'Hilarious at times, sad too, and sometimes slightly shocking, the story grips from the beginning...The dialogue is sharp, and the changes in himself the young man experiences are both touching and realistic...This is a remarkable and sophisticated piece of writing for a young man in his early 20s. Sebastian Hampson is a writer to keep an eye open for.' Otago DailyTimes
