Book recommendation: ‘The Legacy of Hartlepool Hall’ by Paul Torday

“It’s a novel that should enhance his reputation for excellent, ingenious writing” — Tina Jackson, Metro

“More intriguing is the skein of darkness that, in common with much of Torday’s fiction, runs discretely through the story – one sequence is sufficently macabre as to recall the work of a young McEwan.” — Jonathan Barnes Literary Review

“This is a novel about decay and destruction, but bracingly unsentimental and surprisingly moving.” — Kate Saunders, The Guardian

“A gloriously enjoyable wallow of a read.” — John Harding, Daily Mail
