Reviews

"The New Life is filled with nuance and tenderness, steeped in the atmosphere of late nineteenth century London, a world on the brink of social and sexual change. Tom Crewe's brilliant novel dramatizes the relationship between the visionary and the brave, charting the lives of men and women who inspired not only political progress but an entire new way of living and loving."
--Colm Tóibín, author of Brooklyn and The Magician
"Electrifying. Tom Crewe's forensic love of the physical puts the body back into history and makes the past a living, changing place."
--Anne Enright, author of Actress and The Green Road

"A very fine new writer."
--Kate Atkinson, author of Life after Life and Shrines of Gaiety
"[An] auspicious debut... Crewe uses meticulously researched period details to great effect, and rounds out the narrative with solid characters and tight pacing. Readers will look forward to seeing what this talented author does next."
--Publishers Weekly
"Tom Crewe's book is a beautiful, haunting portrait of love in a time that didn't understand it, and a reminder of how close we are to the past."
