Praise

"English Passengers is what fiction ought to be: ambitious, narrative-driven, with a story and a quest we don’t mind going on. On page after page I found myself laughing or nodding or simply envious. I was compelled from first to last, and beyond. The characters are still living with me."
–Nicholas Shakespeare

"A triumph."
–Margaret Forster

"The brutal hand of British imperialism provides the foundation for this broad historical swashbuckler about the English colonization of Tasmania… Kneale’s careful research and colorful storytelling result in an impressive epic."
–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A richly satisfying debut… an original, impressively knowledgeable, and very moving historical novel."
–Kirkus (starred review)
