Product Information

'This is an unputdownable book; there is no choice but to give in to this most unbelievably pleasurable of narrative rides. From Pointillism to broad brushstroke bravura, the prose seems to be on some benign, timed-release speed: its pace in unflagging, its onward rush irresistible... Faber's take on the 19th - century English novel is a heady and intoxicating mixture of affection, respect and scabrous resistance.' The Times
