Beautifully rejacked edition of this wonderful novel from the best-selling author of ‘Miss Garnet's Angel' and ‘Instances of the Number 3'.Many years ago Mr Golightly wrote a work of dramatic fiction which grew to be an international best-seller. But his reputation is on the decline and he finds himself out of touch with the modern world.
'As profound as it is immensely readable.' Mariella Frostrup, BBC Radio 4 Open Book 'A compulsively readable novel.' Observer 'Vickers writes like a haunted angel.' The Times 'Full of charm.' Independent on Sunday 'Salley Vickers is a writer whose subtle intelligence and unobtrusive command of narrative I always enjoy. She sees with a clear eye and writes with a light hand, and she knows how the world works; and these qualities are much rarer than they should be. She's a presence worth cherishing in the ranks of modern novelists.' Philip Pullman 'Few novelists would dare tackle the theme of Salley Vickers's third novel; fewer still would pull it off so triumphantly. I am speechless with admiration.' John Julius Norwich
