Product description

Review

Delivers its jokes and its tragedies as efficiently as Dickens...outrageously funny on almost every page...will dazzle readers for years to come. -- Hilary Mantel, London Review of Books

A debut novel of astonishing confidence and skill...Acutely observant, overflowing with good jokes, it is the work of an author who loves her characters and sets them playing with gleeful energy, Spectator

An astounding book...without doubt one of the finest novels I have read for years, The Times

Little short of a masterpiece...Fizzing with wit and energy, Kate Atkinson's hilarious novel made me laugh and cry, Daily Mail

A blinding debut from a Yorkshire mother-of-two who could be Alan Bennett's baby sister...straight-up simplicity veils the depth, poignancy and poetry of her story, Time Out

A first novel written so fluently and wittily that I sailed through it as though blown by an exhilarating wind; a first novel with a touch so light I only felt its truth and sadness after I'd finished it. It lifted my spirits enormously. I loved it. -- Margaret Forster

Enchanting. It hops with sprightly omniscence from past to future and back again, The Sunday Times

A really gripping, emotionally satisfying family saga written with warmth and wit. I've re-read it countless times., Red

Book Description

An outstanding, exceptional, wonderful, and altogether quite brilliant Black Swan.
