Product description


[Morrison's] prose has the diamond cut of a poet's eye, and his story is suffused with warmth and longing (Independent)

Enormous imaginative reach, transporting us beyond mere testimony or reportage... I don't expect to read a more enthralling memoir [Things My Mother Never Told Me] all year. Or a finer book on love and love's impediments. (New York Times)

South of the River is a Bonfire of the Vanities for Blair's Britain. Intimate and epic, compulsively readable, this is a big ambitious book in every way, a novel of the heart and mind, the personal and the political, the kind of intellectual blockbuster that we get from Philip Roth at the top of his game. Blake Morrison is a bloody marvel. Read his first novel. In fact, you should read everything that carries his name. (Tony Parsons)

A scintillating read. (GQ)

Book Description

Compelling, contemporary, comic, a significant change of direction for Blake Morrison and it's a tour de force - a kind of English The Corrections but sexier, sharper, broader and (for us) infinitely more recognisable.
