Praise

Praise for Last Friends

“The satisfying conclusion to Gardam’s Old Filth trilogy offers exquisite prose, wry humor, and keen insights into aging and death.”
The New Yorker

Last Friends is evocative, elegiac, and shaded in autumnal tones, as suits the final volume in a trilogy. Like Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, the Old Filth trilogy restores us to an era rich in spectacle and bristling with insinuation and intrigue. Vivid, spacious, superbly witty, and refreshingly brisk…the story (and the author) will endure.”
The Boston Globe

“All three Gardam books are beautifully written but it’s a pleasure to note that Last Friends, is the most enjoyable, the funniest and the most touching.”
—National Post

“[Gardam] is the best kind of literary escape: serious, mesmerizing, and deeply satisfying.”
Los Angeles Review of Books

“It’s hard…not to be charmed by a writer with Gardam’s substantial gifts.”
The New York Times Book Review
 

“Gardam proves that, even in its twilight, there is still life in the traditional English novel.”—Publishers Weekly
