Product Details


The Ruins reads like Raymond Chandler remixed by James Lasdun: barbed aperçus and killer images flare across each page, even as unsettling elements moil below, in pursuit of more sinister ambitions.  Every great noir tale is at some level a fantasia on the slipperiness of identity; Osman has written a great noir tale.” — Martin Seay, author of The Mirror Thief

The Ruins is an intriguing and beautifully-written tale of two brothers, filled with music and danger. But at its heart this is a novel about being restless and lonely; about how the inability to create something transient leads to a silent despair and the desire to be someone else.” — Mariana Enriquez, author of Things We Lost in the Fire

“Oozes quiet sedition.” — Sukhdev Sandhu, author of Night Haunts

“There’s a touch of Pynchon in this complex, woozily dream-like novel about music, mystery and imagined worlds…” — Ian Rankin
