Book Reviews

  • Geras has an amazing creativity. She invents and executes the most original plots which she fleshes out with characters so convincing that one feels that one knows them.

    Jane Baker

  • There are many pleasures in this wonderfully warm and entertaining novel - the subtle, deep exploration of character, a story superlatively well told, and the rich, fun details.

  • The reader will sink into Adele Geras’s sensuous descriptions. As ever, the well-observed characters live warmly on the pages, which I couldn’t help but keep turning.
