"Robert Crooke is a skilled prose stylist."
"Crooke has a deft hand at lifting history out of textbook constraints and injecting it with human realism and relevance."
"His writing has a natural sense of timing. The threads of his stories come together with ease and, at times, the deep discomfort of reality."
"What distinguishes Robert Crooke's work from that of other authors is a quality of grace. It is as if his words were lit from within."
"His characters exist in a world of their own concerns, struggles and successes. He doesn't so much invent them as overhear them. He is part storyteller, part listener."
An evocative new work of literary fiction, Letting the House Go is the story of an outwardly successful man whose private grievances and faulty memory are challenged by an unexpected trip to the past.
