Meg Wolitzer, Author of The Interestings: “I love the novel Old Filth, by Jane Gardam. It's a thrilling, bold and witty book by a British writer whom I discovered rather late. Like many great novels, this one's greatness is hard to put into words, but on a superficial level the novel can be described as a look back at the entire life of a retired judge, Sir Edward Feathers, which sweeps along and includes history, and change, both on a personal and epic level. The result is moving, often funny, and always worthwhile. Everyone I know who's read it loves it, and loves to talk about it. I can't say I've read anything else like Old Filth, which stands out for me as a singular, opalescent novel, a thing of beauty that gives immense gratification to its lucky readers.”
