Product description


'Garner's imagination is compelling and the novel has real narrative drive... enjoyable and eloquent' Helen Dunmore, The Times (The Times)

'Darkly atmospheric, Garner's clean, spare prose conjures a strong ,simple narrative... a delight to curl up with' Metro (Metro)

'A sad, sweet tale of the love and misunderstanding between a father and son who dare to aim for a higher place in the world' (Daily Mail)

'THE INGENIOUS EDGAR JONES offers a confabulation of effects: in an atmospheric 19th century Oxford that would play host to Darwin's arguments and Lewis Carroll's dreamy nonsense, the child savant, Edgar JOnes, builds, burns, and soars. Elizabeth Garner's American debut is ingenuity itself, a winner. I love it' (Gregory Maguire, author of WICKED)

Book Description

A magical story of an unusual child, with universal appeal; 'Impossible to put down', Sarah Broadhurst, Bookseller
