The Devastating Boys Reviews
A wonderful novelist * JILLY COOPER * How skilfully and with what peculiar exhilaration she negotiated the minefield of the human heart * JONATHAN KEATES * An eye as sharply all-seeing as her prose-style is elegant -- even the humdrum becomes astonishing * DAILY TELEGRAPH * Brilliantly amusing * ROSAMOND LEHMANN *
