Reviews

Intimate and elemental ... Myers has the potential to become a true tragedian of the fells * Guardian *
This bitter, alarming, occasionally visionary novel of the British wilderness is likely to linger in the mind for some time * New Statesman *
Myers is quite simply an excellent and already accomplished writer. His prose is taut, confident, professionally polished but at the same time maintaining a sense of rustic and unrefined authenticity, that which is truly hewn -- Sarah Hall
I don't know if I have encountered such a strong, engaging character in a book for some time: this is startling, sublime writing * Caught by the River *
A story that will grip you to the final word and a tour de force * Loud & Quiet *
A gripping ride through an imagined heart of Lake District darkness. I couldn't have writ it better myself * Hamilton, British Sea Power *
Wonderful - tough and generous and beautiful -- Will Atkins
