Product description

Review

‘For anyone who enjoyed Reservoir 13, it is essential reading’ Financial Times

‘It’s an astonishing achievement, both effective and deeply affecting…’ Guardian

Praise for Reservoir 13:

‘A wonderful book. He’s an extraordinary writer, unlike anyone else’ Paula Hawkins

‘Absolutely magnificent; one of the most beautiful, affecting novels I've read in years. The prose is alive and ringing. There is so much space and life in every sentence. I don't know how he's done it. It's beautiful‘ Eimear McBride

‘This is a book quite unlike anything I have read before. There's a hypnotic pull to the narrative, which has an irresistibly cumulative effect: in time I felt intimately immersed in a community traumatised by tragedy. Moreover McGregor writes with rare grace and integrity, and with such exquisite care the reader would be hard-pressed to find an infelicitous syllable, still less a word or phrase. If people were not already aware that here is one of our most accomplished living writers, they certainly will be now’ Sarah Perry

‘McGregor writes with such grace and precision, with love even, about who and where we are, that he leaves behind all other writers of his generation‘ Sarah Hall

'Reservoir 13 is quite extraordinary – the way it’s structured, the way it rolls, the skill with which Jon McGregor lets the characters breathe and age’ Roddy Doyle

‘If you don't yet know you should read novels by Jon McGregor, then I can't help you' Evie Wyld

‘A work of intense, forensic noticing; an unobtrusively experimental, thickly atmospheric portrait of the life of a village which, for its mixture of truthfulness and potency, deserves to be set alongside works of such varied brilliance as Ronald Blythe’s Akenfield, Jim Crace’s Harvest and Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood’ Sarah Crown, TLS
