What the Critics are Saying

Ferociously clever - Guardian / Distinctive and dazzling


This is truly exceptional storytelling, combining a sweeping arc of history with writing that, at sentence level, is near-flawless


Whether Shipstead is creating scenes in the Prohibition-era American West, in wartime London, or on a Hollywood movie set, her research is invisible, allowing a fully immersive experience. Ingeniously structured and so damn entertaining; this novel is as ambitious as its heroines-but it never falls from the sky.
