Reviews

Beautiful, dreamlike -- Salman Rushdie
Tabucchi . . . takes his place alongside Irene Nemirovsky, Sandor Marai and Stefan Zweig as one of the great Continental rediscoveries for English-speaking readers * * Daily Telegraph * *
Tabucchi writes . . . with an agility of mind and an economy of narrative that pulls the reader along * * Observer * *
Fragmented, enigmatic and hypnotising -- Val Hennessy * * Daily Mail * *
[Indian Nocturne has] an almost ethereal lightness, which is soul stirring and at the same time emotionally intuitive * * The National * *
The joy of this book is in the journey. If you read it don't rush it; it's a book to savour * * A Life in Books * *
Pereira Maintains is small only in size. Its themes are great ones - courage, betrayal, fidelity, love, corruption; and its treatment of them is subtle, skilful, and clear. It's so clear, in fact, that you can see a very long way down, into the heart of a flawed but valiant human being, into the sickness of a nation, into the depths of political evil. It's the most impressive novel I've read for years, and one of the very few that feels truly necessary -- Philip Pullman on PEREIRA MAINTAINS
