Product description

Review

A beguiling page-turner ... a brilliant creation. To read The Accidental is to be excited from first to last (Independent)

Brilliant and engaging, frequently hilarious, exhilaratingly sharp-eyed . . . Smith makes one look at the world afresh (Sunday Telegraph)

Joyous, a shot across the bows . . . writing as rapture, as giddy delight (The Times)

An astonishing book - funny and moving, playful and shocking. It is what one hopes for in a modern novel, and yet it confounds all expectations. It is complex. It is beautiful. It is exhilarating. It is fiction at its most artful (Financial Times)

Smith's novels fizz with pyrotechnic prose, whirl-wind openings, bewitching invention (Observer)

Exuberantly inventive ... at once dazzlingly bright and profoundly dark (Sunday Times)

Book Description

Winner of the Whitbread Novel of the Year award 2005, and shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2005 and the Saltire Award 2005.
