«The triumph of the work is its discomforting portrayal of an agile mind hampered by the twin shackles of longing and disgust...<i> Europa </i>is that rare beast, a book which demands and withstands a second reading»

Daily Telegraph

«The best thing about <i>Europa </i>is the voice Tim Parks conjures up: Marlow's wry, defeated reason keeps you turning the pages... A forlorn but seductive voice, reminding us that it is far easier to unite a sprawling continent than the few cubic metres that contain a human soul»

Sunday Times

«Sheer enjoyment... Doffing his hat to Joyce and Beckett, Parks really hits his stride»

Mail on Sunday

«<i>Europa</i> is a full and rounded and very disturbing novel…guaranteed to intrigue and, more often than not, have you squirming and wincing.»
