Editorial Reviews

Excellentintelligent, driven, imaginative, obsessive yet still gracious,one of our best." - Fay Weldon "She writes elegantly, unsentimentally, expertly: Martin Amis once said Gee was the only female author of his generation he would bother to read." - The Independent "Astonishingly multi-layered. It can be read as contemporary satire, as a terrifying view of a possible future, as an analysis of the widening gulf between men and women, but especially as a rattling good page-turning yarn." - George Melly"
