Product description

Review

"A Distant Shore is a distillation of everything that makes Phillips's work so impressive: lucid, deceptively simple prose combined with huge ideas and complex emotions... One of those rare novels which successfully examines vast themes through the prism of small lives" (Time Out)

"Suspenseful, atmospheric, adventurous" (Independent)

"Phillips's clever novel about a society under increasing pressure to change won't fail to impress" (Sunday Express)

"This is literary fiction at its very best - a gripping, character-driven novel that portrays the malaise of a whole society through the stories of two individuals" (Sunday Tribune)

"One of the literary giants of our time" (New York Times)

Book Description

'A Distant Shore leaves a lingering taste in the mouth. A remarkable and penetrating novel' The Times
