" I found my self unexpectedly hooked by the Island of Apples - I became increasingly beguiled by its haunting quality." New York Herald Tribune " An iridescent story." New York Times " The novel, like all true works of art, grows more important with time - it is a remarkable piece of work, sustained and controlled." Leslie Norris, Dictionary of Literary Biography
