Reviews

'Monumental. Fugitive Pieces is the most important book I have read for forty years * John Berger * All except a handful of contemporary novels are dwarfed by its reach, its compassion, its wisdom A book to read many times * Geoff Dyer * This is a novel to lose yourself in; let the language pour over you, depositing its richness like waves lapping sand onto a beach. Michaels is a novelist of unusual and compelling power * The Times * Essential reading, both for its exceptional literary craft and for its exemplary and inspiring humanity * Spectator *
