I adored it. * Vogue * Humanises love in a really powerful, beautiful way. * Armie Hammer, Time Out * Extraordinary... Evocative, poetic and deeply beautiful. * Tatler * Brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane and beautiful. * Nicole Krauss, author of Forest Dark * As much a story of paradise found as it is of paradise lost...
