Product description


"A seamless blend of historical fact and fiction...Foulds's writing has a poetic intensity and his descriptions of the autumnal woods around the asylum are as piercingly keen as his insight into the minds of the patients, the doctor and his family" (Daily Mail)

"Adam Foulds won the 2008 Costa Poetry Award, and he is a skilful poet. These talents are well displayed in his prose which, while lyrical, never grows fussy or highfalutin'. He draws a walk-on character with a few deft strokes" (Lionel Shriver Telegraph)

"A work of strikingly beautiful, unforced writing" (Daily Express)

"The chief pleasure of the book is its prose: exquisite yet measured, precise, attentive to the world" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Fould's exceptional novel is like a lucid dream: earthy and true, but shifting, metamorphic - the word-perfect fruit of a poet's sharp eye and novelist's limber reach" (The Times)

Book Description

Shortlisted for the 2009 Man Booker Prize
