Reviews

The writing leaps off the page...it throws up something so original and striking that it takes up permanent residence in a reader's head -- Tim Martin * Daily Telegraph *
Runt is a bungee-jump plummet from modern sophistication into something lurking below, where fantasy takes flesh and ancient knowledge prevails -- Jennie Renton * Sunday Herald *
Runt deserves the hackneyed description 'tour de force' ... it demonstrates Griffiths, a gritty realist, in complete command of the dark despairing gloop that so often smothers human lives -- Tom Adair * Scotsman *
You would have to go back to Thomas Hardy to find a British writer who evokes a landscape so completely * Time Out *
Evolutionary psychology meets mythology in this short, strange, savage novel... Niall Griffiths's prose enchants you * Guardian *
