Product description

Review

Fridlund's writing is vivid: her natural descriptions elicit a superb sense of place * DAILY MAIL * The chilling plot is only part of the mesmerising power of this assured and striking debut from this American novelist * PRESS ASSOCIATION * So delicately calibrated and precisely beautiful that one might not immediately sense the sledgehammer of pain building inside this book. And I mean that in the best way. What powerful tension and depth -- Aimee Bender, author of The Color Master and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake First thing you see is the bracing intelligence of the book's young narrator - no big-eyed sentiments for Linda, raised amid blighted ideals in the ceaseless winters and vast swamps of northern Minnesota. So observant is Linda that you trust her instantly, but it's her own search for trust, for connection even at enormous cost, that will hold you to the final hour. Emily Fridlund's language is generous and precise, her story grief-tempered and forcefully moving. History of Wolves is the loneliest thing I've read in years, and it's gorgeous. These are haunted pages -- Leif Enger Reminds me of Curtis Sittenfeld...so original, a beautiful literary work -- Viv Groskop Life offers "Linda" two simultaneous chances to fit in, although both, as we know from the start, go terribly wrong * GUARDIAN * A writer with a great future ahead of her...her prose is exquisite -- Louise Doughty As exquisite a first novel as I've ever encountered. Poetic, complex and utterly, heartbreakingly beautiful -- T. C. Boyle, author of The Harder They Come Haunting and compelling * i NEWSPAPER * Reminds me of Curtis Sittenfeld...so original, a beautiful literary work" (Viv Groskop); "A writer with a great future ahead of her...her prose is exquisite" (Louise Doughty) * BBC RADIO 4: SATURDAY REVIEW * Beautifully written * LITERARY REVIEW * Compelling ... History of Wolves stands out. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *

Review

So delicately calibrated and precisely beautiful that one might not immediately sense the sledgehammer of pain building inside this book. And I mean that in the best way. What powerful tension and depth

As exquisite a first novel as I've ever encountered. Poetic, complex and utterly, heartbreakingly beautiful

So much is accomplished here, not least a kind of trust that this writer will make everything count, including the kind of data that is usually left for dead in a story
