On its US release, Stephanie Bucklin reviewed The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt for the Summer 2016 issue of Foreword Reviews, a quarterly magazine featuring reviews of books from independent and university presses.
From reflections on technology and art, to questions of addiction and control, the novel moves expertly from a portrait of Lena’s life to an analysis of its broader, deeper themes. The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt is a reflective, quiet, but beautifully written tale perfect for those interested in the intersection of music, literature, and film. ★★★★★
