Product Details

Praise

“One of Lively’s most satisfying novels: cleverly conceived, artfully constructed and executed with high intelligence and sensitivity.” —Los Angeles Times

“An ingenious premise for a novel and Penelope Lively… spins it out with expert skill.” —The Washington Post

“Engrossing… engaging.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Lively’s [novel] maintains the high standard her fans have come to expect. It’s another shining winner.” —The Boston Globe

“Original… bracingly intelligent. Rarely has a subject as elusive as life’s messiness been pursued with such unflagging rigor.” —The Atlantic Monthly

“In her delicate, spot-on prose, Penelope Lively ruthlessly takes her microscope below the surface of two middle-class marriages and magnifies whatever it is that is left behind when passion is gone, when couples become immune to one another.” —The Times (London) 

“To read Penelope Lively’s book is like slipping into the finest cashmere: beautifully wonven, fluid and expensive. Once experienced, it is impossible to enjoy inferior materials.” —The Evening Standard (London)

The Photograph is Penelope Lively’s 14th novel, but she shows no sign of running out of inventiveness or of failing to write books that are hugely pleasurable to read. This one is deftly edged with humour.”  —Independent on Sunday (UK)

‘One of Britain’s most talented and experienced writers. The closer you look the more mystery you see’  —The Times (London)
