Praise for Georgy Girl

“The book moves along at a funny, extremely enjoyable speed in step with Georgy's restless energy, sometimes verging on the farcical, and always contained just this side of pathos”

The Times

“Forster is remarkably honest, skilful and perceptive”

Observer

“Forster has that rare ability to step into another's shoes”
