Recensioner i media
"Tyler's twentieth novel finds fresh fictional riches in imaginative territory she has been exploring for half a century... Atmospherically rendered, the passage of time has both entertaining and heart-rending results. She has never written with more finesse, vitality and acuteness" * Sunday Times, book of the year * "I love Tyler's writing... She writes so beautifully and with such insight. Read her books and she can actually change your view, change how you see the world" -- Judy Finnigan * Mail on Sunday * "Exquisite" * The Times * "Tyler's sentences are wholly hers, instantly recognisable and impossible to duplicate" -- Hanya Yanigihara * Observer, Books That Made Our Year 2015 * "The extraordinary thing about her writing is the extent to which she makes one believe every word, deed and breath" -- Kate Kellaway * Guardian *
