Product description


A surprising and enjoyable read . . .this novel without guardrails stands as a brave debutThe Times

Virtuosity of technique accompanies keenness of insight and depth of characterisation . . .Hinshaw's impressively accomplished debut puts him in [Tim Winton and Jennifer Egan's] company -- Peter Kemp ― Sunday Times

Ben Hinshaw offers
wit, sensitivity and sharp observation . . . the intricate, braided storylines, sustained with energy and relish. It is entertaining, and something more - truly involving -- Hilary Mantel, author of The Mirror and the Light

A poignant demonstration of the way the past is still folded into the presentFT

Ben Hinshaw renders
ordinary human agonies with extraordinary precision and emotional insight . . . This book is a riveting and beautifully patterned map of the emotional archipelago of longing and learning, loving and leaving -- Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers

Such an incredibly clever idea this, a set of interlinked stories in which people who appear in one turn up in another . . there's a regretful, wistful atmosphere that's compelling. Daily Mail
