The German Numbers Woman: A Novel

'“Compelling.” —The Times (London)   “There is so much to enjoy and commend in the novel. Sillitoe inhabits Howard’s unseeing world with absolute conviction, providing a wealth of telling detail about a blind person’s skilful negotiation of his everyday surroundings. Properly gripping.” —TheSunday Times   “Audacious and adventurous. The novel has all Sillitoe’s characteristic virtues. He combines an exemplary craftsmanship with warmth, humour and sympathy. He has the great merit of always seeming to know where his characters are, what they are doing and thinking, when they are not on the page. And he is a compelling storyteller. He makes the fashionable novels of the generation that succeeded his—Amis Junior, McEwan, Barnes, Rushdie—look flimsy, all more concerned with showing-off, peacock style, than with telling it how it is.” —Allan Massie, The Scotsman   “Sillitoe still effectively portrays the psychological idiosyncrasies of British reserve with chilling detail and a tender appreciation for obsessive loners.” —Publishers Weekly  '
