Product description

Review

'[A] quiet giant of British writing... extraordinarily flexible prose. It's restrained and luminous' --The Daily Telegraph

'A new book by M. John Harrison in an event. The recurring idea in many of the stories is the need for escape, and the impossibility of it... In other hands, this might come across as cynical or hectoring, but Harrison is far too subtle a writer for that. There is genuine sorrow here... and genuine anger too...' --The New Scientist

'Harrison draws out his ghostly characters from behind the bones of the plot, allowing their stories to be emotional, poignant and disquietingly possible...' --Lamorna Ash, The Times Literary Supplement (£)

'His novels have been likened to J.G. Ballard's, but these stories are more like satirical set pieces than brooding psycho-fictions: genial and generous, finding wry mirth in absurdity.' --Houman Barekat, The Spectator

'In the far-distant future, when hyper-intelligent scorpions are looking back on the culture of the upright apes that once cluttered this planet, I think they will be frankly bemused that Kazuo Ishiguro won the Nobel Prize for Literature, that Ian McEwan won the Man Booker Prize, that Donna Tartt won the Pulitzer and yet all the time M John Harrison was staring them in the face.' --Stuart Kelly, The Scotsman

'One of the best writers of fiction currently at work in English.' --Robert Macfarlane



'The exactness, acute self-consciousness and vigilant self-restraint of Harrison's writing give it piercing authenticity.' --Ursula K. Le Guin

The wit and effortless elegance of the writing are impeccable.' --Ursula K Le Guin, The Guardian

About the Author

John Harrison is the author of eleven novels (including In Viriconium, The Course of the Heart and Light), as well as four previous short story collections, two graphic novels, and collaborations with Jane Johnson, writing as Gabriel King.
