Review

Burnside wrestles with hugeness in a way that few writers dare to ... convincingly gracious and profoundly necessary."
--Ali Smith
"A remarkable author ..."
--A. L. Kennedy
"A master of language ..."
--Hilary Mantel
"A spare, bewitching, beautifully written book ... Burnside nimbly delineates the border where the actual and illusory meet: on both sides he finds dark and flinty human truths."
--"London Times"
"Burnside has written a haunting tale of crime and absolution; belonging and alienation; guilt and grief. Both this novel and [his poetry] are superb achievements. To be both a poet and novelist is highly unusual. To write so outstandingly well in both genres is a rarity indeed."
--"Financial Times
"""The Devil's Footprints" is a classic tale with an old-fashioned, gripping plot. But it is also helplessly good at the things that Burnside loves best: geography, the neighbours, the way people's lives go, and the way people's other, secret lives turn out."
--"Guardian"

"Stunning. . . . Remarkable. . . . majestically written, with a piercing intelligence and a razor-sharp sense of the human predicament."--"The New York Sun""Burnside is a luminous writer and muscular thinker."--"Los Angeles Times""A classic Jekyll and Hyde story. . . . Burnside is an acclaimed poet and indeed, his prose shimmers with the silence that resides at the center of all poetry."--"Milwaukee Journal""Sentinel""A devouring eloquence . . . what happens on almost every page is absorbing. . . . The work of an 'extraordinarily good writer.'"--"Times Literary Supplement"Burnside wrestles with hugeness in a way that few writers dare to ... convincingly gracious and profoundly necessary."--Ali Smith"A remarkable author ..."--A. L. Kennedy"A master of language ..."--Hilary Mantel"A spare, bewitching, beautifully written book ... Burnside nimbly delineates the border where the actual and illusory meet: on both sides he finds dark and flinty human truths."--"London Times""Burnside has written a haunting tale of crime and absolution; belonging and alienation; guilt and grief.
