The Eye of Love: A Novel

'“A double-plotted . . . masterpiece with a great deal of wit and not an ounce of sentimentality.” —John Bayley, Guardian Books of the Year   “Wonderful . . . I don’t think I’ve so often laughed or so nearly cried for quite a long time.” —Elizabeth Bowen   “Miss Sharp has excelled herself. Witty and compassionate, lively, amusing and warmly humane, merciless in its observations, it will give endless delight.” —Woman’s Journal  Praise for Margery Sharp “Sharp has a touch all her own when it comes to taking on social class, sex and its consequences, and the changes that the 20th century brought to both those arenas, most especially for women. She remained, always, both polite and biting, looking at the intoxications and delusions of life and love with wit and clear-eyed sympathy.” —The New York Times “One of the most gifted writers of comedy in the civilized world today.” —Chicago Daily News   “Highly gifted . . . a wonderful entertainer.” —The New Yorker   “[Sharp’s] dialogue is brilliant, uncannily true. . . . She is an excellent storyteller.” —Elizabeth Bowen   “It is as natural for Miss Sharp to be witty as for a brook trout to have spots.” —The Saturday Review of Literature'
