Product Details

Praise

Red Shift, with its passionately bickering adolescent lovers and its vertiginous plunges through the wormhole of time, shook me to the core every time I read it, and still does. . . . More than any orthodox work of historical fiction, it was this weird fantasy novel which taught me to look beyond the walls of my own era, my own reality. Garner makes the past numinous, terrifyingly real: anything but passed.”
—Emma Donoghue

“Garner squeezes language into depth charges which will detonate emotions at a level where words cannot reach.”
The Listener

“A bitter, complex, brilliant book.” —Ursula Le Guin

“Long before Philip Pullman and J. K. Rowling there was Alan Garner, a children’s author who crossed the boundaries between real and imaginary worlds—and between a young and an adult readership.”
The Times (London) list of the 50 greatest British postwar writers

“A work of poetic imagination that will keep any adult mind at full stretch.”
Daily Mail (London)

“. . . a magnificently multilayered novel. . . a superbly exciting piece of literature.” —The Sunday Times (London)
