Recensioner i media

'Like Madame Bovary blasted by lightening ... A masterpiece.' Angela Carter 'At some point every good reader comes across "By Grand Central Station I sat Down and Wept". And he or she recognises an emotion essential and permanent to us.' Michael Ondaatje 'A revelation...This short, powerful work has a profound influence on me and was one of the factors that made me want to be a writer.' Beryl Bainbridge 'I doubt if there are more than half a dozen such masterpieces of poetic prose in the world.' Brigid Brophy 'Explores a passion between a man and two women, one of them his wife - a love despairing and triumphant upon which the reader may gaze, awed, appalled, or even, perhaps, envious.' The Times 'Constructed as a single, sustained climax, it is like a cry of ecstasy which, without changing volume or pitch, becomes a cry of agony.' Spectator 'The emotion, the truth and abject affliction comes through...to move the reader, and even to awe him.' London Review of Books
