‘A powerful yet tender reclamation of the imagination, love, and artmaking - all of it a brilliant defence of the outsider’s tenuous foothold in society’
'Shimmering with the uncanny, it’s a remarkable feat of literary virtuosity’
‘A magically beguiling work, a triumph of artistic vision’
‘It shouldn't be possible for a book to be simultaneously heart-stopping, heart-shaking and pulse-racing, but that is only one of the extraordinary feats Max Porter pulls off in this astonishing novel’
