Product description

Review

Graham Swift has mapped his Waterland like a new Wessex. He appropriates the Fens as Moby Dick did whaling or Wuthering Heights the moors. This is a beautiful, serious and intelligent novel, admirably ambitious and original (Observer)

Perfectly controlled, superbly written. Waterland is original, compelling and narration of the highest order (Guardian)

A 300-page tour de force . . . A burst of exuberant fictive energy (Evening Standard)

Waterland is a formidably intelligent book, animated by an impressive, angry pity at what human creatures are capable of doing to one another in the name of love and need. The most powerful novel I have read for some time (New York Review of Books)

A quite brilliant novel (Daily Telegraph)

Waterland, like the Hardy novels, carries with all else a profound knowledge of a people, a place, and their interweaving . . . Swift tells his tale with wonderful contemporary verve and verbal felicity . . . A fine and original work (Los Angeles Times)
