Product description


"Haunting...Like meticulously nested Matroyshka dolls, both Farthing and Ha'Penny reveal complex arguments layered in their elegantly structured narratives." --Sarah Weinman, Los Angeles Times

"Walton's understated prose and deft characterizations elevate this above similar works such as Fatherland and SS-GB." --Publishers Weekly

"Stunningly powerful.... A standout. Mainstream readers should be enthralled as well." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Farthing

"If le Carré scares you, try Jo Walton." --Ursula K. LeGuin on Farthing

"A subversive, trenchant and simultaneously dark and light piece of speculative fiction. Can I get an amen? ...The parallels between her Britain and today's climate are never didactic and always effective. It's also a book about husbands and wives, and about class and sex. It is quite an achievement, brothers and sisters. Hallelujah." --Bookslut on Farthing

"A stiff-upper-lip whodunit boasting political intrigue and uncomfortable truths about anti-Semitism." --Entertainment Weekly on Farthing

"Walton realizes an all-too-convincing alternate world in which the Third Reich but not its spirit was stopped at the English Channel. The characters are highly plausible, and in every aspect from the petty snobbery hampering the inspector to the we-don't-do-that-here conclusion, the plot encourages warily reconsidering the daily news." --Booklist on Farthing

"Amazing... One of the most compelling and chilling books of the year." --RT Book Reviews on Farthing

"A beautifully-written alternate history thriller by World Fantasy Award-winner Jo Walton, Farthing is a smart, convincing tale of a country's slide into fascism that's sure to entertain casual and genre readers alike." --Cinescope on Farthing

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Jo Walton comes from Wales but lives in Montreal, where the food and books are much better. She writes science fiction and fantasy, reads a lot, talks about books, and eats great food. She plans to live to be ninety-nine and write a book every year. --This text refers to the digital edition.
