—The Chicago Tribune
A major twentieth-century writer and an extraordinary and unique talent: her gifts were unusual—a piercing eye; an acute ear; an incisive, often caustic wit; a voice so distinctive; and a style so inimitable.
—Frank Kermode, The London Review of Books
Surely the most engaging, most tantalizing writer we have.
—New York Review of Books
The most original and innovative British novelist.
A wonderful writer.
Completely sick. In all the right ways.
