Product description

Review

‘The fiction of Peter Matthiessen is the reason a lot of people in my generation decided to be writers.’ 

 

(Richard Ford)

'His writing does every justice to the blood and fury of his themes.'

(Don DeLillo)

‘Darkly humorous… [In Paradise] gives no hint of the writer’s age or declining physical powers. The maturity of its insights, and its emotional restraint, are the only signs the author is not a youth’

(The Herald)

‘A moving valedictory for one of America’s most wide-ranging and poetical writers… compelling… vivid… hypnotic’

(Financial Times)

‘Skilful… affecting and powerful… In Paradise gets at the heart of the defining tragic enigma of the 20th century… [It] is Matthiessen's complex and worthy adieu’ 

(Jane Smiley, Guardian)

‘The best passages here are beautifully observed evocations of the place… There is much to meditate on and many reasons to read this novel’

(The Times)

 ‘A dark but thoroughly testing, ambitious and thought-provoking novel’

(Curious Animal)

‘Powerfully lyrical and atmospheric’

(Observer)

‘A curious, risky novel’

(Literary Review)

‘Lucid, compelling… A masterclass in fiction… Stunning’ 

(Irish Times)

A co-founder of The Paris Review and a world-renowned naturalist, explorer and activist, he died in April 2014.
