'Has the swift fluency of a master storyteller.' --Ian Stephen, Northwords Now
A beautifully-made historical novel. In its fast-moving and accessible storytelling, in its emotional punch, and in its brilliantly-realised evocation of a time and place.' --Booktrust
'Bernard Malamud meets Hilary Mantel - This is succinct, thoroughly absorbing storytelling, which casts - light on the origins of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A timely, terrific novel by a writer at the very top of his game.' --David Belbin
'An historical novel big on romance and contemporary relevance. The Land Agent creates a vivid picture of Jewish Palestine in its original state, when the idealism of socialist settlers competed with the more hardnosed vision of Zionists for how to build the future homeland.' --Michael Goldfarb
