Reviews

"A tremendously imaginative novel that's really several novels in one, for beneath its sparkling surface there are some very murky depths. A wonderfully disquieting read." --Sarah Waters, author of The Little Stranger

"This is one of the few novels I have read that is truly musical. Wesley Stace is a brilliant and intensely original writer and this is his most unusual book yet." --Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

"A gripping narrative that twists and turns to the end...By far the most confident musical fiction I have read in years." --Norman Lebrecht, New Statesman (UK)

"Wesley Stace's tale of music and murder is a baroque intellectual thriller, wittily erudite and psychologically astute." --Alex Ross, author of The Rest Is Noise

"We might have predicted that Wesley Stace---a fine novelist and a fine musician---would one day write a novel about music, but could we have predicted that it would be so brilliant? The dialogue sparkles, the prose glimmers, and for once you leave a novel not just haunted by the characters and the story, but humming the tunes." --Jonathan Coe, author of The Rotters' Club

"[Stace's] twisty plot of jealousy and murder unfolds with Nabokovian precision during Britain's early twentieth-century folk and early music revival." --Ludovic Hunter-Tilney, Financial Times (UK)

"Recalls one of the greatest and saddest novels of the period, Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier and follows the tradition of great novels of imaginary music." --Roz Kaveney, The Times Literary Supplement (UK)
