New York, a small town on the tip of Manhattan Island, 1746.

One evening, a handsome young stranger off the boat from England pitches up to a counting house on Golden Hill Street, with a compelling proposition - he has an order for 1,000 pounds in his pocket that he wishes to cash. But can he be trusted? New York is a place where a young man with a fast tongue can reinvent himself, fall in love, and find trouble....

Genre: Historical    

Praise for this book

"Addictively readable." - Mark Haddon

"Francis Spufford has one of the most original minds in contemporary literature." - Nick Hornby

"Golden Hill is a meticulously crafted and brilliantly written novel that is both an affectionate homage to the 18th century novel and a taut and thoughtful tale." - Iain Pears

"Quite marvellous. A vivid re-creation of colonial New York, in which the adventures of Mr Smith, who may be a charlatan or a hero, make for a page turner, with an unexpected and unusually satisfying ending." - C J Sansom
