"Strange, beautiful and terribly moving" A.S. Byatt 20030116 "This deeply moving book shames most writers with its nerve and tact and wonder" Michael Ondaatje 20030116 "An unconsoling masterpiece...It is exquisitely written and exquisitely translated...a true work of art" Spectator 20030116 "A spellbinding account of four Jewish exiles. Its restrained and meditative tone has stayed with me all year" Nicholas Shakespeare 20030116 "A sober delicate account of displacement, and a classic of its kind. Modest and remote, it resurrects older standards of behaviour, making most contemporary writing seem brash and immature. No book has pleased me more this year" Anita Brookner, Spectator 20030116
