About the Author

Nicholas Royle is Professor of English at the University of Sussex.

'I read Quilt with admiration - it's a work of remarkable imaginative energy.' - Frank Kermode ; 'A book of mythological power. Quilt is unforgettable, like all those great pieces of fiction that are fed by our immemorial root system, the human dream of metamorphosis.' - Helene Cixous; 'A lexical celebration and a psychological conundrum... Royle explores loss and alienation perceptively and inventively.' - The Guardian; 'It is in those commonplace moments at the end of a life... moments which Nicholas Royle describes with such piercing accuracy, when this novel is truly at its strangest.' - TLS; 'The way the storyline ultimately develops takes the breath away.' - The New Statesman; `Royle's baroque, athletic prose... confers a strong sense of the "strangeness" of English... moments of delightfully eccentric humour and impressive linguistic experimentalism.' - The Observer; `An experimental and studied look at mourning. Playful, clever and perceptive.' - The Big Issue; `It is quiet, lapidary, and teases out the tangled filaments that link insight to feeling with the unnerving stealth of a submarine predator.' - Will Self.
