“A witty, lucid, and beautiful psychological novel.. . . By far her best book.” –The New Yorker

“Bowen is a major writer. . . . She is what happened after Bloomsbury . . . the link that connects Virginia Woolf with Iris Murdoch and Muriel Spark.” –Victoria Glendinning

“Bowen writes with both art and skillful artifice. . . . [The] quality of restraint, of the unsaid, gives her novel its curious tautness and intensity.” –The New York Times

“[The Death of the Heart] manages to make a major statement about human character. . . . We finish the book with that sense fiction nowadays rarely communicates, of life’s having been mysteriously enlarged.” –The New Yorker
