A spellbinding, globe-trotting novel by the bestselling author of the Ibis trilogy.(P)2019 Hodder & Stoughton Limited
In its blend of science, history, myth and contemporary relevance, Gun Island offers a rich mix of ideas * i *Amitav Ghosh's Gun Island is an extraordinary reading experience from one of our greatest living storytellers. Ghosh masterfully collocates disparate worlds to create a story of family, self, history, and destiny * Neel Mukherjee *A book of reckless and persuasive scope, a huge, rambunctious reckoning with our environmental declension * Sunday Times *A compelling book - a sinuous and often gripping piece of storytelling, satisfyingly shaped and beautifully written * Prospect *A rich and rewarding novel that reaffirms the transformative power of topographical and human connection, and registers the rhythms of the quiet and the unquiet life * The Spectator *It demonstrates how the particular genius of the novel can be deployed to examine the subject of climate change in ways beyond the scope of journalism, history or documentary. Gun Island shows us how the psychological compulsions for order and security that drive our unwillingness to confront climate change are about to be first unsettled and then destroyed * Literary Review *With sweeping exuberant style and extraordinary linguistic facility Ghosh takes us into a world where desperate refugees trickle through borders like water from melting ice, but where massing animals find no escapes. Old legends and ancient myths take on new meaning. This important novel is an account of our current world, the one few writers have had the courage to face * Annie Proulx *
