Hadley är väldigt duktig på att beskriva miljöer för att skapa en bra atmosfär. Tyckte storyn var lite tunn i börlan men blev med tiden, framförallt i den andra delen, riktigt fast och had svårt att lägga ifrån mig boken.

Exquisite... For anyone who cherishes Anne Tyler and Alice Munro, the book offers similar deep pleasures. Hadley crystallizes the atmosphere of ordinary life in prose somehow miraculous and natural.... Extraordinary * Washington Post * An astute and finely written novel * Stylist * A brilliant British take on two generations of family inhabiting the same house. -- Tim Martin * Daily Telegraph * Full of wonders * Observer * Tessa Hadley has an exquisite eye for detail. -- Joanne Finney * Good Housekeeping * Tender dissection of a certain sort of English middle-class life is magnificently done: half celebration, half elegy. -- Phil Baker * Sunday Times * Poetic, tender and full of wry humour. A delight * Sunday Mirror * Tessa Hadley excels at presenting the contrasting viewpoints of children, teenagers and adults, and her evocative descriptions of the English countryside are a delight. -- Anthony Gardner * Mail on Sunday * Splendid... Hadley's gift for depicting the interior lives of children and adults rivals Ian McEwan's * Chicago Tribune * She deserves all the prizes. Hadley is psychologically acute, drily witty and...absolutely wonderful on place * Observer * Tessa Hadley is funny, precise, sensuous, and one of the best writers of family life that you are ever likely to encounter - simultaneously sympathetic and penetrating * Daily Mail Books of the Year * A masterful novel * Spectator * My favourite contemporary novelist... Nobody explores the mystery of relationships better than Hadley. -- Deborah Moggach Tessa Hadley has become one of this country's great contemporary novelists. She is equipped with an armoury of techniques and skills that may yet secure her a position as the greatest of them. -- Anthony Quinn * Guardian * Tessa Hadley recruits admirers with each book. She writes with authority, and with delicacy: she explores nuance, but speaks plainly; she is one of those writers a reader trusts. -- Hilary Mantel Hadley is an exquisite writer, with a fine eye for detail and a way of crafting sentences that make you stop and inhale * The Times * A new Tessa Hadley is a pleasure to be savoured... The Past is a hugely enjoyable and keenly intelligent novel, brimming with the vitality of unruly desire. -- Sameer Rahim, four stars * Daily Telegraph * She has such great psychological insights into human beings, which is rare. She is one of the best fiction writers writing today -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie I find Tessa Hadley's work genuinely helpful, especially when it comes to the big subjects: love and marriage, the political versus the personal, children, friendship. And then there are the sentences themselves, so precise and beautiful, often sly, sometimes devastating, always expertly paced. Few writers give me such consistent pleasure. -- Zadie Smith One of the best novels of 2016. -- Ron Charles * Washington Post *
