Praise for Arctic Summer
"Beautifully written and utterly compelling."
--The Times
"The author has managed to craft a version of E.M. Forster that penetrates his inner life better than any conventional biography ever has."
--The Economist
"The genius of this novel, which would well be one of the finest literary works published this year, lies in Galgut's exploration of the agony of unrequited love."
--The Irish Times
"A remarkable, lyrical tribute."
--The Guardian
"Galgut is extremely good on Forster's anxieties, his loneliness, his unworldliness, and his 'crumpled, second-hand appearance, which made him seem like a tradesman of some kind.' The portrait is beautifully nuanced, a mixture of bold, colorful strokes and delicat little flicks of the brush."
--The Sunday Times
"The pain of unequal love and the desolating gulf between desire and fulfillment, so beautifully conveyed here by Glagut in the case of a long-dead writer, is as recognizable today as it was over a century ago."
--The Telegraph
