Product description


"I loved The Flood. It's a funny, convincing amplification of the Biblical story." Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl with a Pearl Earring; "The Flood is funny, tender, intelligent, energetic, irreverent and worshipful. It is an enormous juggling act of families, animals and faith, and it kept me engaged through every page. I imagine Noah would be enormously pleased with David Maine's novel. I know I was." Ann Patchatt, author of Orange Prize winner Bel Canto; "Brilliant... A story of faith and survival (think Life of Pi thousands of years earlier and with a much larger cast of characters) this debut is a winner." Publishers Weekly; "The Flood is a fabulous book reminiscent of Jim Crace's Quarantine... Refreshingly original, very funny and a perfect blend of Biblical history and wondrous imagination. This is one you will want to shove into the hands of everyone you know." Stephen Torsi, The Bookseller; "A funny, cheeky, irreverent, wonderfully original first novel, informed both by Biblical history and David Maine's joyous imagination." Jim Fergus, author of One Thousand White Women; "An elegant and inventive book." Janet Maslin, New York Times; "Part domestic drama, part supernatural thriller... as realistic and suspenseful - really! - as any modern tale." Time Out New York"
