Praise

Praise for Anthony Quinn’s Freya

“Fantastic […] [A] testament to women who fought for what they wanted in a time of little personal and professional autonomy. Clever dialogue […] wonderfully captures the personalities, strengths, and weaknesses of major and minor characters alike.”
Publishers Weekly

“[A] fascinating, luminous story of a decades-long friendship between two women, interrogating gender roles and expectations with a masterly human touch.”
Entertainment Weekly

“This fall’s great historical epic may be an import.”
New York 

Freya is a nuanced work, combining exciting social history, and acute characterization.”
—The Spectator

“Freya and Nancy could use another volume; here’s hoping.”
—The Guardian

“With its busy plot, its drinking and smoking, its crisp wit and contemporary soundtrack […], Quinn’s novel delivers evocative, high-quality entertainment that may well leave readers hoping for a sequel.”
Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“Here is a modern woman to be celebrated in all her contradictions and complexity.”
—The Evening Standard


Praise for Anthony Quinn

“Quinn is the literary equivalent of Houdini, a novelist who has a particular talent for absenting himself and letting his characters come to life.”
The Independent

“Quinn brings the period in question vividly to life: his research is exemplary, and his subject absorbing.”
—Observer
 
“[Quinn] has a thrilling knack for turning familiar periods of history into something surprising and often shocking, and for making the fortunes and misfortunes of his characters matter.”
—Evening Standard
