Product description

Review

Suffused with desire and regret, this beautiful, understated novel is a moving meditation on change and compromise (Guardian on GHOST PORTRAIT)

Anything by Gregory Norminton is a pleasure to read - the pages skip by in his light, cadenced style (Time Out on GHOST PORTRAIT)

Sardonic, carnal, intellectual, violent, urbane, ARTS AND WONDERS delves straight back to the origins of the novel...classic picaresque ( Guardian on ARTS AND WONDERS)

Clever and energetic and sly and funny and full of inventiveness. I wish there was more fiction like this being published in Britain. (Kate Atkinson on SHIP OF FOOLS)

A remarkable achievement ( Times Literary Supplement on SHIP OF FOOLS)

'impeccably written... It is rare enough to find a successful conflation of the personal and the political but to articulate immense issues such as environmental depredation, the culture of narrow self-interest and the mendacity of power within a story that stays anchored to its plot and characters without falling into tub-thumping is astonishing. Norminton's measured, elegant prose makes beauty and menace sing in perfect harmony. The book is worth reading for his writing on teh English countryside alone, while his scaling of the treacherous cliffs of the human heart will take your breath away." (Seven, Telegraph, Neel Mukherjee)

Book Description

A riveting, subtle novel about an undetected crime and its corrosive legacy for the schoolboy culprits, by a highly praised young writer
