"A masterpiece... Meticulously detailed, harrowing, oddly beautiful, its depiction of a family's disintegration is one of the most powerful pieces of writing I've read in years" Observer, Books of the Year "The best book I read this year...full of artistic, moral and technical daring" Guardian, Books of the Year "This suburban epic, electrifying in candour and eloquence, feels streets ahead of the comparable Jonathan Franzen" Independent, Books of the Year "Incredibly moving" Irish Times, Books of the Year "A scorchingly honest, unflinchingly frank, hyperreal memoir of the life of one man and his family" Guardian "This first instalment of an epic quest should restore jaded readers to life" Independent "As tense as any thriller yet without a jot of sensationalism" Metro "Readers will be captured by Karl Ove's narrative intensity" Times Literary Supplement "I think this is one of the best pieces of writing I've ever come across." Farm Lane Books (literary blogger)
