Product description

Review

A thought-provoking, moving novel, The Daily Mail on The House on Paradise Street

Sofka Zinovieff's debut novel is an engrossing saga of a family riven by ideological conflict and fractured by war ... Zinovieff's historical gaze is scrupulously fair and does not shirk from uncomfortable truths, Observer on The House on Paradise Street

Zinovieff writes vibrantly . There seems to be something poignant - and very often funny - on every other page, Observer on The Red Princess

The delicacy of Zinovieff's perceptions, the abiding redolence of her descriptions and the captivating moods of her subjects make The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother and Me a book of rare pleasure, Times Literary Supplement

Zinovieff provides a vivid sketch of the extraordinarily glamorous society of Faringdon in its heyday, Guardian on The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother and Me

Zinovieff is an entertaining and amiable companion on this, at times, uncomfortable romp through her family saga, The Times on The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother and Me

Zinovieff's historical gaze is scrupulously fair and does not shirk from uncomfortable truths, Observer on The House on Paradise Street

Zinovieff tells a broad and enriching story . It is Zinovieff's scrupulous eye for cultural curiosity which gives the story its sinew and underlying humility, Independent on The House on Paradise Street

Zinovieff's portrayal of Greece is beautiful and believable, engaging all the senses, Spectator on The House on Paradise Street

A piercing portrait of an extraordinary woman . Zinovieff approaches her subject intimately, Daily Telegraph on The Red Princess

Book Description

From the acclaimed author comes a brilliant, challenging novel about a bohemian family in 1970s London and the consequences of a taboo relationship
