Praise for So Disdained

Any book by Nevil Shute is a delight

Punch

That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is masterly

H.E. Bates

There is a quality of golden light that hangs over his books. That comes, I think, from his sense of order and from his own vast, undemonstrative solicitude

John Ezard, Guardian
