Product description

Review

"A wonderful tale of female friendship… Elegant and compelling, it’s a riveting study of a changing world and the struggle of two women to find their place in it." (Eithne Farry Mail on Sunday)

"Quinn explores the big issues of the century – feminism, homosexuality, immigration, the individual versus society – but does so with a deceptively light touch. He draws us into the consciousness of his protagonists in an utterly compelling way… Quinn’s characters…will continue to live on long after reaching the final line of this wonderful novel." (Andrew Wilson Independent on Sunday)

"There’s plenty more to tantalise us as we move from the austere 1940s to the tumultuous 1960s... [Quinn] Has evidently gorged on recent histories of the period… Quinn’s skill lies in picking a surprising route through familiar terrain, blurring the boundaries of fact and fiction in a style that calls to mind William Boyd. Besides being adept at marshalling period detail, he is a fluent, engaging storyteller, whose suave prose masks an unusually shrewd sense of how relationships work." (Henry Hitchings Financial Times)

"There aren’t many novelists with smoother, more elegant prose styles than Anthony Quinn. His sentences practically purr on the page… Immensely enjoyable… Effortlessly entertaining and gracefully thought-provoking." (James Kidd Independent)

"I can’t remember the last time I devoured a book with such greed. Quinn’s eponymous, sweary heroine trailblazes her way through Oxford, Nuremberg, Soho and all points between." (Sara Manning Red)

Book Description

"Once again Anthony Quinn shows himself a master at writing fiction that works on every level' (Daily Telegraph)"
