Reviews

Mars-Jones's prose is exceptionally nimble, dry, humorously restrained, very English, with a little Nabokovian velvet too. He can describe more or less anything and make it interesting.--James Wood
Mars-Jones is a writer of wonderful originality and wit.
Dry, accurate, tragic.--Edmund White
