Product description

Review

'Runcie has captured the truth about love ... he is the simple chronicler of English post-war life, using irony and understatement to lay bare the pathos of ordinary lives ... Beautifully done' Sunday Telegraph 'A tender, intimate account of post-war England which left me both wistful and elated ... So engaging, so well-shaped and so unsparingly, generously truthful' Jim Crace 'Runcie's third novel is a funny, epic, moving story of Thameside folk ... Canvey Island is a beautifully observed, tragi-comic work' What's On 'Runcie writes with an excellent feeling for time and place, and, above all, the intensity of ordinary lives' Choice --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

A story of post-war Britain through the lives of one family. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
