Praise for this book

"A strange, magical extraordinary book. It's so atmospheric, so strange and affecting. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like it before, and I'm not sure how Myers has made it work, but he has - I was totally gripped by this." - Jenn Ashworth

"An exhilarating, outdoor song of hope and vision, The Perfect Golden Circle taps into something charged, ancient and elemental in England and its people." - Rob Doyle

"No one writes about the atmosphere, beauty and brutality of the English countryside better than Ben Myers. And it's hard to think of many people who can write with with such attentiveness, tenderness and force about the importance of human connection and the redemptive power of art. Quite simply, this is a magnificent book." - Wendy Erskine

"Benjamin Myers is a writer of extraordinary and incandescent talent. Like J. L. Carr's A Month in the Country, this is a book about beauty and warfare, about how to heal a wrecked heart. I loved it." - Alex Preston

"The beauty of Myers' language alone is reward enough to read this superb novel, but The Perfect Golden Circle offers so much more: an all-too-rare literary depiction of rural England, the depths of the two central characters, the class and ecological concerns; but most of all the human need for what the Welsh poet Bobi Jones called 'the boundless mystery that comforts being.' A truly remarkable novel." - Ron Rash
