Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
Drabble's fiction has achieved a panoramic vision of contemporary life.
Washington Post
Reading Margaret Drabble's novels has become something of a rite of passage...Sharply observed exquisitely companionable tales of women of a certain age and class, educated, egocentric, strong, unlucky in love.
LA Times
As meticulous as Jane Austen, and as deadly as Evelyn Waugh.
