The Crow Road by Iain Banks

Banks has woven a warm and funny story, rich with characters and adventures. An utterly enchanting piece of fiction…it marks a return to his brilliant best. NEW WOMAN This is Bank s’ finest novel yet. INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Hip and sexy humour…Bank reinforces his credentials as one of the most able, energetic and stimulating writers we have in the UK. TIME OUT The Crow Road is tight with detail and closer observation and creates a strong sense of a particular period of growing up. THE INDEPENDENT Magic is the book’s keynote. It echoes in descriptions of evolution that pass from the factual to the elegiac and on the mythical. It calls most insistently when intensity – of love, lust or grief – burst through limited expectations or circumstances to release poetry. THE TIMES Banks keeps death in its place, under the boot of wit which knows that the most significant romance can blossom whilst your youngest brother is up to the elbow in Sugar Smacks looking for the plastic toy. OBSERVER The tense horror of the book…is done with considerable imaginative subtlety and a fine touch…This is as fine and ambitious a novel as any from a Scottish writer since the 1960s. It is also unquestionable Bank’s best work to date. NEW STATESMAN A magnificent, rambling family saga…his best novel yet. FOR HIM
