Praise

“A death-defying story, inventive, eventful, and affirmative without being sentimental.” —Time

 

“Luminous, haunting, restrained . . . cuts to the core of human existence.” —Chicago Tribune

 

“Resonates with psychological reality: the beautifully layered relationships, the tracing of the many-layered love between father and child, husband and wife. . . . As artfully conceived as it is poignantly realized.” —The New York Times Book Review

 

“A great pleasure to read. . . . McEwan writes as if Dickens, Lawrence, and Woolf were in his bones. . . . Funny and unsentimentally passionate.” —The Wall Street Journal
