Guardian review

The Guardian - "McGuinness has written the great book on Belgium and modern memory, or even Belgium and modern being. He takes his place among those singers and painters of the haunted, the melancholy, the diminished, the caricatural, the humdrum: Ensor, Rodenbach, Sax, Huysmans, Simenon and Magritte." Michael Hofmann

The Independent , Sean O'Brien

reviewed in The Literary Review by Gillian Tindall here

"This book had a powerful effect on me [...] a meditation - sometimes hilarious, sometimes freighted with tragedy - on times past [...] I understand why Patrick McGuinness goes back and back to the old, damp, quiet house in Bouillon. But I think that, one day, with this book safely written, he may turn the key in the door for the last time and walk away." Gillian Tindall
