Advance Praise for The Ruby in Her Navel
The Ruby in Her Navel is captivating, sensuous, and immensely moving. It helps us understand our own contemporary world, for this is Barry Unsworth, the master of resonant historical fiction, on top form.”
—Jim Crace

“Barry Unsworth brilliantly peoples one of the most dazzling and least-known chapters of European history; I loved this book.”
—John Julius Norwich

Praise for The Songs of the Kings

“Detail so precise you can almost smell the cook fires . . . [Unsworth has an] almost magical capacity for literary time travel.”
—Neil Gordon, New York Times Book Review

“A book of subtlety, compassion, and skill, and it confirms Barry Unsworth’s position as a master craftsman of contemporary British fiction.”
—Charles Nicholl, Los Angeles Times Book Review
