Product description

Review

'Stunning ... a book that for once really does deserve to be called a masterpiece'  (Kate Atkinson)

'Magnificent ... McCarthy's Border Trilogy is a point of reference, as is There Will Be Blood, but it is not fanciful to be reminded of certain passages from Moby-Dick - it's that good' (The Times)

'Only in the greatest of historical novels do we come to feel both the distance of the past and our own likely complicity in the sins of a former age, had we been a part of it. To that rank, we now add The Son' (New York Times)

'The Son makes a viable claim to be a Great American Novel... an extraordinary orchestration of American history' (Washington Post)

'Its viscerality and boundless capacity for storytelling puts it on a par with the classic of the genre, Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian'  (Sunday Telegraph)

'Brilliant ... a wonderful novel'  (Lionel Shriver)

'Meyer is an impressive and multi-talented storyteller in the old, good sense – the kind that makes me hang on for whatever the next chapter will hold' (Richard Ford)

The Son is an epic, heroic, hallucinatory work of art’ (Chris Cleave)
