Product description

"Marvellous... Raging and elegaic" (Guardian)

"A tragedy of classical proportions...a magnificent novel" (The Times)

"Utterly tragic and compelling. It's one of the greatest modern American novels" (Tatler)

"Wonderful, rich...entirely gripping" (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

Reissued in electric new backlist style for October 2016, American Pastoral won the Pulitzer Prize in 1997
