One of the finest writers in English.- Daily Telegraph
Rose Tremain's writing is a rare commodity — major literary works with huge popular appeal. From the Booker shortlisted Restoration (1989) and the Whitbread-winning Music and Silence(1999) to the Orange-shortlisted The Colour (2004), her novels display a daring breadth of literary invention. The Road Home — her forthcoming meditation on the contemporary migrant experience — is further proof of Tremain's remarkable facility for rendering the “otherness” of human experience.
Realised with photographic intensity and unremittingly paced, this is a devastatingly good novel. - Observer on Schopenhauer's Telescope.
Gerard Donovan is the Irish-born, New York-based author of the prize-winning Schopenhauer's Telescope. His latest novel Julius Winsome is a tender and heartbreaking tale of love, solitude, grief and violence, set in the remote hinterlandof Maine. Narrated by the inscrutable Julius — at once compassionate, vulnerable and threatening — this haunting novel reads like a long lost classic. Sharing themes of isolation, exile and the powerful pull of environment, these two highly acclaimed authors probe the disparate landscapes of identity.
