Product Details

Praise

"Losing Nelson may be Barry Unsworth’s best book to date; it is accomplished, effective, exciting and intelligent…Information is cunningly deployed, the pace perfectly controlled, the mood of zealous desperation, of exhilarated misery, is heightened from page to page."        
The Sunday Times (London)

Sacred Hunger, winner of the Booker Prize:

"Wonderful and breathtaking…It is a book of grace and meditative elegance, and of great moral seriousness."
The New York Times Book Review

"Utterly magnificent…By its last page you will be weeping."
The Washington Post

Morality Play, a national bestseller, shortlisted for the Booker Prize and a New York Times Notable Book:

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

"A bravura performance…A thought-provoking comedy on the eternal sameness of disaster and the recurrent uses we put it to in art."
The New York Times Book Review

After Hannibal:

"From its start as a deceptively simple, possibly amusing tale of a neighborhood squabble about a damaged wall, After Hannibal builds into a brilliant novel, exquisitely precise in its analysis of evil twisting its way through ordinary lives."
Boston Globe

"A skillfully composed and beautifully written novel."
Times Literary Supplement
