Reviews for The Danube

‘A review can’t encompass the majestic canvas of Thorpe’s book. Wise, thoughtful, unprejuduced and consistently absorbing, it is also beautifully writtern… Thorpe’s inspired images quicken and animate the story of the dark and dreaming river.’ – Miranda Seymour, Literary Review
