Let us tell you about a very special book

Categories: Reviews

In June, we published the new novel from Susan Fletcher, Let Me Tell You About A Man I Knew, which tells the story of Vincent van Gogh’s last years in Provence in the hospital of Saint-Paul-de Mausole – home to the mentally ill. This beautiful book has been receiving wonderful praise from all quarters – here is a selection of the best so far:

‘Astonishingly good . . . Fletcher unpeels with delicacy and insight the complex layers of the human heart’
