Review

" A masterwork. . . . [Boyd is] one of the finest authors of our time." -- "Forth Worth Star-Telegram
"" Brilliant. . . . Burns with the kind of artistry that turns a piece of short fiction into a work of imagination that expands beyond the boundaries of the page. . . [Boyd' s] breadth and depth and control are simply breathtaking." -- "San Francisco Chronicle
"" Lovely. . . . Elegant. . . . [These stories] deal not simply with art vs. life but with the terrible demands that art makes upon the artist." -- "The Washington Post
"" Deeply moving. . . . The insights arrived at in Boyd's stories are experienced rather than merely witnessed. They strike us deep, and they stick." -- "The Boston Globe"
" The stories are perfect... Suffused with an understanding of love, desire, and emotional incompetence."
- M. John Harrison, the "Guardian"
" A virtuoso range of techniques, Boyd shows here just what he is capable of... The resonance and impact of past events on present lives, and a sense of yearning for love or completion, permeate these perfectly formed snapshots of life at its most mystifying."
- Ross Gilfillan, The "Daily Mail"
" Boyd' s remarkable, and almost wholly consistent, gift is to convince us of the roundness, the existence of his characters from the very first sentence."
- Erica Wagner, The "Times"
" Short stories by William Boyd are an occasional treat... For those who enjoy what might loosely be called canape fiction -- delicious little morsels that whet the appetite but never sate it-- "Fascination" is a must-read book. Every one of the 16 stories has the patina of craftsmanship... The writing transcends cleverness... An impressively sophisticated offering from a writer whose charms never wane.
- David Robson, The "Sunday Telegraph
"" Sly and consistently entertaining... Boyd uses the artistic methods of the cinematographer... but he twists them to his own ends... This collection demonstrates Boyd' s versatility as well as his virtuosity. He is as much at home writing about nineteenth-century Vienna as he is twentieth century Cape Cod.
- Sebastian Shakespeare, "Literary Review"
