Praise for Lawrence Norfolk

‘Lawrence Norfolk is a genius’   Louis de Bernieres

‘Norfolk - he'll be remembered. He invented a new form in some ways. He has a good ear for the language and an original vision of the nature of things. He is also very playful [and] totally accessible. Not hidden away in some academic corner; he is right in the middle of the British literary tradition’   A S Byatt

‘Lawrence Norfolk is just about ahead of everyone in his generation of English novelists’   Observer

Praise for Lemprière’s Dictionary

One of the finest novels of the Nineties ... a novel quite comparable in scale, intelligence and literary playfulness to the work of Thomas Pynchon or Umberto Eco’   Malcolm Bradbury

‘The power of his debut can’t be ignored. It’s poised, superbly inventive and gripping ... Norfolk has catapulted himself into the premier league of English fiction writing’    Observer

Praise for The Pope’s Rhinoceros

‘Lawrence Norfolk has created one of the most ambitious and inventive historical novels to be written since the death of Robert Graves … an astonishing achievement, little short of a masterpiece’    Independent

‘A gargantuan, dazzling fable’    Guardian

Praise for In the Shape of a Boar

‘Ambitious, intelligent, innovative, erudite, elegant, witty, lyrical and serious’    The Times

‘[A] fiercely brilliant, sustained display of virtuoso writing’    Guardian
