Product description

Review

Justin Cartwright is one of our best novelists -- Allison Pearson, Daily Telegraph Books of the Year

Cartwright is a beautifully evocative writer; also one who makes you think. -- The Scotsman

I doubt if there is a better English novelist of his generation. -- Alan Massie, Scotsman

Justin Cartwright looks to be one of the finest novelists currently at work -- Guardian

The pleasure of Cartwright's writing lies in its deft observation ... and
the prose hums with perfectly nuanced details. -- Financial Times

'This is a deeply thoughtful novel, written with originality and
force' -- Helen Dunmore, Guardian

'a hugely adroit and imaginative modern novel by one of our great
contemporary talents' -- D. J. Taylor, Independent on Sunday

'a magnificent novel, the narrative utterly compelling, the
author's understanding of moral complexities quite remarkable' -- Alan Massie, Scotsman

His characters' regrets, resentments, hopes and fears are very
real... his talent for spotting a telling detail can be devastating -- Independent on Sunday

`Cartwright sets up plenty of competing ideologies in an intelligent but accessible novel that ultimately questions what lessons we can truly hope to learn from the ever mutable narratives of history' -- Metro

The Scotsman

Cartwright is a beautifully evocative writer; also one who makes you think.
