Product description

Review

"From its first page, you're aware that you are in the presence of a writer with exceptional gifts. By the final one, you know he has used them to create a masterpiece" (Peter Kemp Sunday Times)

"If you believe English fiction is jaded, you must read Adam Thorpe... Tender, precise, tragicomic and unsentimental" (Hilary Mantel Independent on Sunday)

"We aren't used to the many deep matters Thorpe touches on, nor to such a thorough grasp of the complex nature of our rural past, and through it, of all existence itself... Suddenly English lives again" (John Fowles Guardian)

"These stories sing like psalms, robust and vibrant - a poet's novel and a celebration that no social historian would dare attempt" (Observer)

"One of the great British fictional works of our time" (LA Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
