"A beautiful, elegiac work . . . required reading for everybody." -- Ian Rankin, "Evening Standard" (U.K.) "O'Hagan offers a deeply moving meditation on losses, both personal and historical, and on the tide of time through generations." --" Kirkus Reviews" "A timely corrective to the idea that nothing profound can be said about now." -- Will Self, "Observer" (U.K.) "The most auspicious debut by a British writer for some time." -- "The Independent" (U.K.)
