Product description

Review

"As well as possessing imaginative gifts, Michel Faber is a writer of unusual skill...Strong satire in the Swiftian tradition, rendered with outstanding narrative power - genuinely horrible and down-right weird." -- Time Out

"Faber's approach throughout the novel is unashamedly adventurous and eclectic. If he were a lesser writer, his feverish imagination could have got him into quite a muddle. he successfully avoids this because he has fine judgment and is a consummate showman." -- The Spectator

"Faber's disconcerting vision, his instinctive feel for pace and suspense, and his vision of an upside-down existence are too unsettling and too finely drawn to be knocked off course." -- Bella Bathurst, The Herald

"This is a man who would give Conrad a run at writing the perfect sentence...Room will now have to be made at Faber alongside Alasdair Gray, James Kelman, Irvine Welsh and A.L. Kennedy." -- The Guardian

Book Description

Includes Faber's novella The Courage Consort
