«Walter's account of the filming of the Burton/Taylor classic Cleopatra is a playful imagining of emotional history and hidden lives just out of view. Be warned, this is a novel that may make any festive guests somewhat anti-social as I read it in two days flat»

Olivia Cole, GQ 'Books of the Year'

«Poignant, comical and marvellous»

San Francisco Chronicle

«Larger-than-life characters, billowy romance and crafty satire ... Any book that includes Richard Burton as a character is fine by us»

Esquire

«Cinematic and utterly romantic . . . the big beach read for summer»

Sunday Times

«Ambitious, large-hearted, exhilarating novel that leaves you wanting more . . . Very, very funny»

The Times

«Beautiful Ruins is a novel unlike any other you're likely to read this year»

Nick Hornby

«Romantic, very funny...Turbo-charged satire meets a Garcia Marquezesque love story. What's not to like?»

Daily Mail

«Walter creates an epic here - one that took him 15 years to write. The end result, however, is well worth the wait»

Observer

«A sparkling summer read»

Telegraph

«My absolute favourite read this year»

Nick Curtis, Evening Standard 'Books of the Year'

Sunday Express

«You're going to love this book»

New York Times Book Review

«A brilliant, madcap meditation on fate»

Kirkus Reviews

«A novel shot in sparkly Technicolor»

Booklist

New York Times
