Reviews

'As a bookseller I have to read 100s of books. Rarely do I read books more than once for pleasure - this book is one of them - it really is that good ... Roz's books .. are so good that I just leave copies on the counter, talk about them a bit and let them sell themselves.' Peter Snell, Barton's Bookshop, Leatherhead, Surrey

'A strange and stubborn book, visual and visceral, original and odd... will stay with you long after finishing its final pages' - For Books' Sake

'Classy, stylish writing, a profound tale in page-turning fashion. Unreservedly recommended.' John Whitbourn, Victor Gollancz award winner.

'I was seriously impressed by a writer of such skill and confidence. She dances between plausible reality and the shadowy realm of interpretation, underpinned by evident intelligence. A real corker, in fact.' Jill Marsh, Words With Jam

'Fine writing, skilled storytelling, excellent pacing, twists, turns, and a story that both entertains and informs. What a welcome relief spending time under the spell of such a skilled artist. Amazingly different.' Maryann Madsen

'I am seconding the reviewer who said "I want to talk to someone about this book!" It's a born book club selection with a maze of ideas, questions and themes to discuss. I'm always on the lookout for fiction that takes creative risks, draws me in with a compelling voice and shows a real mastery of the craft of writing. This book does all that and more. My Memories of a Future Life delivers on a genius premise with grace and storytelling skill... charms us with characters we don't want to leave behind and challenges us with a complex idea we couldn't leave behind if we wanted to.A thoroughly entertaining, thought-provoking, wonderfully moving verismo of a novel.' Joni Rodgers, League of Extraordinary Authors

'Sinister elements reminiscent of The League of Gentlemen and The Prisoner ... balance between intrigue, mild terror and charlatanism is perfectly maintained ... I need to talk to someone about this book' Ruby Barnes, Build Another Bookshelf

'Like John Fowles's The Magus ... combining an unsettling plot with hints of more beyond. It's not the depressing realism of your typical Booker novelist or the light fluffiness of a slice of middle class city life. Enjoyed it immensely.' Matt Kelland
