Review:

A love story that is also a story of ideas...The love story between Thomas and Azalea is touching and gently written. * THE METRO * This story twists like a pretzel, the author teases and tantalises the reader, and it's delightfully unexpected. * THE TIMES * This is an absorbing and unusual novel suffused with intelligence, charm and humanity and I highly recommend it. * THE BOOKSELLER * A love story that is also a story of ideas...The love story between Thomas and Azalea is touching and gently written. * THE METRO * This story twists like a pretzel, the author teases and tantalises the reader, and it's delightfully unexpected. * THE TIMES * This is an absorbing and unusual novel suffused with intelligence, charm and humanity and I highly recommend it. * THE BOOKSELLER *
