A subtle, human history of the early twentieth century ... The Great Explosion deftly covers a tumultuous period of history while centring on the tiniest moments - just punctuation marks in time * Financial Times *
A brilliant evocation of place grasped in its modernity * Guardian *
[Dillon's] account of the Faversham explosion is as bold as it is dramatic, while his descriptive passages about the marshlands of Kent are so evocative that you can practically feel the mud sticking at your feet * Evening Standard *
Dillon ... has a WG Sebald-like gift for interrogating the landscape ... a work of real elegiac seriousness that goes to the heart of a case of human loss and destruction in England's sinister pastures green * Irish Times *
Exhilarating ...utterly beguiling * Literary Review *
