Venus Over Lannery is charmingly and gracefully written. First published in 1936, this is one of those great novels that can be savoured from first to last with the leisurely enjoyment that comes only from the true literary gift. Martin Armstrong writes with an admirable rightness of ease, strength and sensitiveness. Some of the descriptive passages are exceptionally beautiful; the whole is exciting. A most absorbing novel.
