Edward Carey recommends
The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore (2011)
"An enormous, glorious rattlebag of a book... a yelping, bouncing, pleading, longing, lost, loony, bleeding, pleading, laughing, beseeching wonder."
The Bird's Child (2015)
Sandra Leigh Price
"A wonderful, strange, glittering book, full of astounding imagination, glorious really."
