Reviews

Chillingly brilliant . . . sinister and stunningly well executed * Independent on Sunday * Extraordinary, amazing, vivid, convincing. [Ackroyd's] view of life questions the role not just of the novel but of art and history, memory, time and much else * Financial Times * A novel remarkable for [its] power, ingenuity and subtlety * London Review of Books *
