‘At last: a novel that unites the externalized horrors of war with the internalized battles of the domestic; that fuses the world of Tolstoy with that of Virginia Woolf. The Siege is an important as well as a thrilling work of art.’
(The Independent on Sunday)

‘Utterly convincing. A deeply moving account of two love stories in terrible circumstances. the story of their struggle to survive appears simple, as all great literature should ... A world-class novel.’
(Antony Beevor, The Times)

‘Literary writing of the highest order set against a background of suffering so in intimately reconstructed it is hard to believe that Dunmore was not there.’
(Richard Overy, Sunday Telegraph)
