It questions the fine line between the normal and the extraordinary, and the moments that haunt our settled view of the world.

“One of the true works of art of our benighted era” John Banville, Irish Times on The Lay of the Land

“My great book of the year ... so wonderfully written in every breath of every sentence” Hermione Lee, Guardian

“A massive, ruminative, poignant and cathartic novel ... it is a masterly account of a modulating adult life. Ford's canvas is huge, but his wealth of subtle detail remains astonishingly vivid” Independent on Sunday

“Wistful, bittersweet and often very funny ... seems to locate all the quiet despairs and hopes of the human condition with exquisite precision” Daily Telegraph
