He makes me think of Chekhov.” —William Faulkner   “The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature.” — André Gide   “A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness.” —The Independent (London)   “Superb . . . the most addictive of writers . . . a unique teller of tales.” —The Observer (London)   “Compelling, remorseless, brilliant.” —John Gray   “A truly wonderful writer . . . marvellously readable—lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the work he creates.” —Muriel Spark   “A novelist who entered his fictional world as it he were a part of it.” —Peter Ackroyd   “Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century.” —John Banville
