Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
   • "Funny, sad and faintly ominous... making jealousy tangible and dangerous." --Spectator 

   • "An intelligent and addictive entertainment... Mr. Barnes has succeeded in writing one of those books that keep us up until 2am reading just one chapter more... few will be able to resist its easy humour and almost insidious readability." --New York Times Book Review
