Reviews

'Stunning ... a book that for once really does deserve to be called a masterpiece' -- Kate Atkinson
'Magnificent ... McCarthy's Border Trilogy is a point of reference, as is There Will Be Blood, but it is not fanciful to be reminded of certain passages from Moby-Dick - it's that good' * The Times *
'Only in the greatest of historical novels do we come to feel both the distance of the past and our own likely complicity in the sins of a former age, had we been a part of it. To that rank, we now add The Son' * New York Times *
'
The Son makes a viable claim to be a Great American Novel... an extraordinary orchestration of American history' * Washington Post *
'Its viscerality and boundless capacity for storytelling puts it on a par with the classic of the genre, Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian' * Sunday Telegraph *
'Brilliant ... a wonderful novel' -- Lionel Shriver
'Meyer is an impressive and multi-talented storyteller in the old, good sense - the kind that makes me hang on for whatever the next chapter will hold' -- Richard Ford
'The Son is an epic, heroic, hallucinatory work of art' -- Chris Cleave
