'Hollinghurst is a master storyteller . . . thrilling in the rather awful way that the best Victorian novels are, so that one finds oneself galloping somewhat shamefacedly through the pages in order to discover what happens next.' John Banville 'Hollinghurst can make language do what he wants . . . It makes a lot of contemporary fiction seem thin and underachieving.'
