Product description

Review

"An introspective, original novel…It is hard to write about figures of recent history in a way that feels authentic and true, but Bill Evans is drawn here in all his quirkiness and mutability…This novel stands as a well-written lament. It is a clear-eyed exploration of a jazz intermission, of the forced break in the chaos, and an apt tribute to a music so full of life that even a pause, a silence, can go down howling." (Esi Edugyan Guardian)

"This fine if elusive novel about a jazz giant echoes his art in both its style and its story-telling…A novel as oblique, elusive but quietly hypnotic as its hero’s own playing." (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"A sensitive depiction of an artist in mourning…A delicate and affecting work of fiction…[Martell] writes with elegant precisionIntermission is an impressive English-language debut, a deft and sensitive depiction of a family shadowed by loss." (Financial Times)

"The mood music conjured up is evocative, reflective and muted…Martell’s wonderful portraitis as vivid as it is sympatheticLingers in the mind like an elusive, mournful melody." (Daily Mail)

"Superb." (Irish Times)

Book Description

Captivating and hypnotic writing from a prize-winning novelist, whose prose is reminiscent of Marilynne Robinson's and Paul Harding's.
