The Birthday Boys: A Novel

'“Bainbridge’s account of the horribly familiar story is both fresh and sure-footed. The power of her imagination, her clarity of expression and mastery of language are more striking than anything else I have read this year.” —Jane Shilling, The Sunday Telegraph   “A beautiful piece of story-telling. Far more accurately than any biography could do, it catches what must have been Scott’s hold on his followers.” —Andro Linklater, The Spectator   “Her darkest work, equally convincing in its evocations of the icy, unendurable landscape without, and the chilling interior landscapes of damaged souls.” —Penny Perrick, The Sunday Telegraph   “She writes of the hideous deprivations so boldly endured; the astounding beauties of the Antarctic landscapes; the personality clashes; the emotional reticences. . . . It seems to me that Beryl Bainbridge has quite surpassed herself.” —Mary Hope, Financial Times  '
