Reviews

The book I keep coming back to, it's one of the best books I've ever read. I've never met anyone who didn't love it.
*Richard Osman*

Tender and elegant
*Guardian*

Unlike anything else in modern English Literature
*Spectator*

Carr's blessedly small tale of lost love is also a small hymn about art and the compensating joy of the artist, both in giving and receiving. It stays with us, too, and is oddly haunting
*New Yorker*

Carr has the magic touch to re-enter the imagined past
*Penelope Fitzgerald*
