Praise

"Imagine a Graham Greene thriller projected through the sensibility of Virginia Woolf." —The Atlantic Monthly

“[Bowen] startles us by sheer originality of mind and boldness of sensibility into seeking our world afresh. . . . Out of the plainest things–the drawing of a curtain–she can make something electric and urgent." –V. S. Pritchett

"Dense as a poem with symbol and suggestion. . . . The work of a writer [of] rich and winning gifts." —Time

"Miss Bowen [has] power to evoke, suggest and explore down oblique and little-frequented avenues the mysterious centers of human conduct." —The New York Times
