Reviews

A magnificent, deeply moving and compassionate portrait of an era and a sentimental education. Please read it - Daily MailBeautiful, vivid and defiantly funny - The TimesThis novel is surely Gardam's masterpiece. On the human level, it is one of the most moving fictions I have read for years . . . This is the rare novel that drives its reader forward while persistently waylaying and detaining by the sheer beauty and inventiveness of its style. One must savour every phrase. The marriage of quirky eccentricity and psychological authenticity is a Gardam technique, but here her cunning wit, moving deftly between scenes and eras, displays the tragedy of a vintage world forever passing away - GuardianWhat a spiky brilliant sledgehammer of a novel is Jane Gardam's Old Filth - Patrick NessShe does fiction as it should be done, with confidence and insight - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, praise for The StoriesI recommend it wholeheartedly for its economy, breadth of narrative, and its insight, humour and pathos - Mail on Sunday
