Product description

Review

Warner's new novel, The Deadman's Pedal, amply fulfills his talent.an exceptionally fine novel by any standards. Warner's language is deliriously vivid. The Deadman's Pedal is morally sensitive, exquisitely written and emotionally mature. It could not be mistaken for a book by any other author: Warner has triumphantly come into his own (Stuart Kelly Guardian)

He's never written better. The Deadman's Pedal is a novel that will last. This is the best Scottish fiction since Lanark (Brian Morton Scottish Review of Books)

Filled with rich predicament, where parallel lives collide in a creative undoing of the status quo... Anyone who reads it must be grateful that The Deadman's Pedal is the first of a trilogy, and hope that Warner writes quickly (Sheena Joughin Sunday Telegraph)

Compelling.the patterns of Warner's grand design emerge, as mesmerising as the highland scenery he describes with such sublime intensity (Peter Carty Independent)

The prose achieves rhythms and textures of ecstatic beauty, the images are often mesmerising (the descriptions of Simon's oddly peaceful train journeys within the "endarkened cell" of the driver's cab are especially good), the dialogue is pitch-perfect, and the characterisation is vigorous throughout. The Deadman's Pedal is a lovely novel, and a return to form on the part of one of Scotland's most brilliant writers (Edmund Gordon Sunday Times)

Book Description

A bildungsroman, a demented comedy, a wild romantic fling - The Deadman's Pedal is another thrillingly imagined adventure from the inimitable Alan Warner.
