Product description


The first great book of the decade ― GQ

A stunner, an unnerving portrait of a man stripped of civilization's defences ― New Yorker

A writer almost uniquely in tune with modern life . . . Ferris's flashes of brilliance are many ― Evening Standard

Original, affecting. An almost unbearable love story, between remissions of intense connection and the human inevitability of parting, between the haven of marriage and all that lies beyond ― Observer

At once riveting, horrifying and deeply sad. Fiction with the force of an avalanche, snowballing unstoppably ― San Francisco Chronicle

Hugely readable, engaging, original. What an imagination - and what a memorable conceit ― Literary Review

As hard to pin down as its hero, yet as readable as The CorrectionsGuardian

Immensely readable, a grand American novel ― New Statesman

Seizes readers by the lapels with a story that feels serious and mysterious ... He has teased ordinary circumstances into something extraordinary, which is exactly what we want our fiction writers to do ― Economist

Ferris writes hauntingly on the fragility of our minds and on the compulsions that drive us, despite our best intentions ― Vogue
