Book of the Year English Passengers
by Matthew Kneale
Our Price: $22.50
What the judges say: "English Passengers reads like a dream -- one of the most enjoyable books we've ever read for pure, unadulterated, page-turning excitement. Unquestionably the novel of the year for its stunning historical depth, superb control of narrative and masterly mix of tragedy and comedy, and for Kneale's remarkable ability to deal with complex historical truths without ever resorting to bogus hypocritical cant. An absolute delight, from start to finish."
