a wonderfully constructed edifice; ideas, possibilities, emotions, dreams bounce and echo from one to another, creating a subtle meditation on the limitations of and the potential for love and transcendence (Tim Pears Author of Landed and In the Place of Fallen Leaves)
Complex, thought-provoking, multi-faceted - an extraordinary achievement (Francesca Kay Author of An Equal Stillness)
A formidable debut (Suzi Feay INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)
A Book for All and None [is] a work grand enough in its ambition to house not only a trio of modern characters but also characterizations of Nietzsche, Salome, their mutual friend, Paul Ree; and occupying a room not quite of her own, Virginia Woolf...Morgan seems determined to show just what, in her first novel, she can carry off...she masters her disparate materials impressively...[the] novel unfolds like a work of paper-sharp origami to reveal its incredible secret. (TLS)
This intensely academic novel is stuffed to bursting with good things... Past and present are very neatly plaited together (THE TIMES)
Morgan manages that symphonic trick of weaving her parallel narratives into a spell-binding, effortlessly propulsive unity (THE INDEPENDENT)
Morgan's novel echoes AS Byatt's 'Possession' but has a contemporary edge all its own (TIME OUT)
This debut novel of love, madness and creativity is written with eloquence and artistry. (MAIL ON SUNDAY)
Woven into this ambitious brainteaser of a novel is the beginning of Nietzche's intense, obsessive relationship with Lou von Salomé in 1882, Woolf's Pembrokeshire sojourn of 1908, and the origins of her first book, The Voyage Out... it is unashamedly intellectual and sensually written. (THE GUARDIAN)
Reflecting its modernist influences, A Book for All and None is a novel of ideas and aesthetics, exquisite in its descriptive passages, but driven by a tension between the cerebral and more fundamental emotional needs. (Jonathan Ruppin WE LOVE THIS BOOK)
A beautifully written debut novel from Monmouthshire-born Clare Morgan, A Book for All and None brings Virginia Woolf and Freidrich Nietzsche to life in a modern love affair set partly in Pembrokeshire and the Welsh borders. (Steve Dube WESTERN MAIL (Cardiff)) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
A beautiful, haunting literary debut from an extraordinary talent and future prize-winner.See all Product Description
