Editorial Reviews

Sunday Times (London)
His characters, eccentric, tattered, inconsequent, slowly and powerfully burning up their lives, are unwieldy and magnificent . . . Aidan Higgins is a writer of great originality and strength.

What People are saying about this

Annie Proulx
The ferocious dazzling prose of Aidan Higgins, the pure architecture of his sentences, takes the breath out of you. He is one of our great writers.

In you, together with the beginner, is the old hand.
