Review

"Brilliant, tender, a stylistic dazzler" -- Hilary Mantel "A dazzling achievement" Time Out "Morvern is a brilliant creation... more than a stunning debut novel; to my mind it establishes Alan Warner as one of the most talented, original and interesting voices around" -- Irvine Welsh "Morvern is a compelling creation; elusive, enigmatic and opaque. Both ordinary and extraordinary, she gleams out like onyx from a vivid, macabre and lyrical book" Guardian "Not since Camus' The Outsider has a voice with so many angles hopped and fluttered from the pages, has a note risen to chill in its opening breath" Scotland on Sunday
