Labels and Other Stories Reviews

A witty and warm collection -- Valerie Grove * The Times *
This entertaining collection of 14 short stories showcases all the familiar tropes, stylistic flourishes and trademark deadpan humour that make their author such a pleasure... A delight -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday *
Delightfully imaginative stories * i *
These stories often read like fairy tales for adults, and seem intended, above all, to raise a smile... they do this very nicely... Labels is an amusing and clever story, its absurdist tone well fitted to its subject -- William Skidelsky * Financial Times *
Louis de Bernieres is a very genial observer of human folly. These stories are warm and witty, peopled with fallible characters at the mercy of their own prejudices and insecurities -- Eithne Farry * Daily Mail *
