Recenzii

"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 debut...it 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

"It's a beguiling premise and there are a couple of erotic twists in the tail. We are swept up in our heroine's sexual odyssey" Tatler "Attachment faces the uncomfortable subject of female ageing with wry, disabused humour...read her book on its own feminist terms'" The Times "She has an expressive turn of phrase and a gift for evoking a sense of place" Sunday Times "Humorous, poetic and as life-like as fiction can be" She "An impressive debut...it 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
