The Carer will ring bells for any reader with parents reaching the grab-rail stage of life but proves as touching as it's funny. Moggach writes in the best funny-ouch tradition, her humour always rooted in acute observation of our frailties and appetites
Beautifully written, oozing interesting characters that you genuinely care about
Surprising, funny and certain to have more than one reader wincing in recognition
Deborah Moggach's warm heart and cool eye for hilarious British idiosyncrasies are both on top form here - I laughed like a drain. Specially at the hippy Lothario in the wet Welsh woods
If you enjoyed THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, there's a chance you'll love the author's new novel even more. A heartwarming triumph
The most endearing of humorists, Deborah Moggach casts a penetrating eye on our foibles and fantasies. Neither ageing, nor death - as The Carer so beautifully demonstrates - can resist her comic scrutiny
Moving and funny
A wry, witty and wise novel, full of insight and understanding'
A witty tale, with beautifully drawn characters
A cracking, crackling social comedy with some brilliant people observations about ageing and a devilish plot twist
'Lit up a dull day with its warmth and wit'
I just loved it - so touching and wise and funny, full of all the lovely touches that Debby is so good at. She draws characters so deftly; you begin to think you know them from the smallest of observations. They're all so human!
Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection
A sharp, witty, characteristically generous and gallopingly readable novel
