Reviews

`Lovingly rooted in 1970s and 1980s Sheffield, "The Northern Clemency" effectively reclaimed a lost genre of politically astute, richly decorated provincial family saga for modern readers.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent (Book of the Year)

`A tremendous book. Against an unfashionable 1970s background Philip Hensher has composed not so much a condition-of-England as a condition-of-humanity novel, which is gripping and surprising and shocking in all kinds of unpredictable ways, and enormously wide in psychological and moral scope. What a writer he is!' Philip Pullman

`Wise and strong and unputdownable.' A.S. Byatt, Financial Times (Book of the Year)

Alex Clark, Sunday Telegraph (Book of the Year)

`A remarkable novel...a cumulative effect of luminous richness, like a perfect piece of orchestration...something more than brilliant cleverness makes this novel extraordinary.' Jane Shilling, Sunday Times

Philip Hensher's new book shows that the epic, exciting, deeply engaged novel of society is not dead in England. The book has all the blessings of art, with the pulse of what Henry James called `felt life' at the centre of its moral adventures." Andrew O'Hagan
