Attachment Press Reviews

Just thinking of this novel, I smile... so gratifyingly readable. When it comes to deciphering our new world and its emotional intricacies, Fonseca is spot-on -- Fay Weldon A searing tale of middle-aged anxiety, so accomplished and pertinent, witty and wise * Independent on Sunday * Fonseca possesses a wonderful eye and vocabulary for the observable world, a natural gift for portraiture and a nasty wit about characters we're not supposed to like... All is perfectly suited to her complex subject, one worth taking seriously: the difficulty of loving someone you already love, and its corollary, the stony impenetrability of others -- Richard Ford An impressive is insistent, weighty, carefully and densely composed....this is an adult book in all respects, reflecting, with an inquiring intelligence and emotional honesty * Time Out * She has an expressive turn of phrase and a gift for evoking a sense of place * Sunday Times *
