Summary

‘A masterpiece.’ Daily Mail

‘Absorbing and immersive . . . the author’s greatest novel.’

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

Each version of Ferguson’s story rushes across the fractured terrain of mid-twentieth century America, in this sweeping story of birthright and possibility, of love and the fullness of life itself.
