There is enchantment in this book; and wistful gaiety; and tragedy; and corruption and innocence
Perceptive and deftly ironic . . .
It is a fascinating story that Mr. Mason spreads before us and he does the job with uncommon skill.
An English first novel with a particular freshness of setting and mood, and which for all its delicacy is also sharply underscored.
