«Tim Parks masterly new novel is... intellectually sophisticated, formally ambitious, and belongs to a cosmopolitan European tradition. But it is one that pays honour to the heart as well as to the mind»

Sunday Times

«Complex but captivating and exactly observed... A book to digest slowly and savour»

The Times

«This brilliant work fizzes with bleak humour and a crackpot energy... a powerfully affecting novel of married life and cultural incompatability... Parks is an exceptionally acute observer of modern life»

Daily Telegraph

«He can write, at will, like a modern Henry James, proceeding with composure through the labyrinth... Indeed, this is a novel that seems to exist on the brink, on the edge of insanity»

Literary Review

«A wilful, hypnotic novel... <i>Destiny </i>gleams with insights into the trade-off between the personal and the political... a stylish, ambitious novel of a life in freefall»

He has won the Somerset Maugham, Betty Trask and Llewellyn Rhys awards, and been shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
