Praise for Andrew Miller:

‘Miller writes like a poet, with a deceptive simplicity – his sentences and images are intense distillations, conjuring the fleeting details of existence with clarity. He is also a very humane writer, whose philosophy is tempered always with an understanding of the flaws and failings of ordinary people’- Guardian

‘One of our most skilful chroniclers of the human heart and mind’ Sunday Times

‘A writer of very rare and outstanding gifts’ – Independent on Sunday

‘His startling sentences, both beautiful and distressing, can lodge themselves in your brain.’ – Daily Telegraph

‘A writer of astonishing gifts who peels his characters back to the quick with a language that never misses a note’ Irish Times
