Review

Graceful and considered ... an elegant, compassionate and wide-ranging tribute to the resilience of humans ― The Times

Parris has a feel for language, a sense of history and a wonderful wit ― Scotland on Sunday

Parris is a skilful entertainer, who informs as well as amuses. ― Literary Review

I learned a lot reading this ... the strength of <i>Fracture </i>is that it is very much like a cracking radio script: entertaining and easy to digest ― Spectator
