'The Narrow Road to the Deep North is a big, magnificent novel of passion and horror and tragic irony. Its scope, its themes and its people all seem to grow richer and deeper in significance with the progress of the story, as it moves to its extraordinary resolution. It's by far the best new novel I've read in ages.' - Patrick McGrath

'Magnificent.' -- Michael Gorra, The New York Times

'Beyond comparison . . . an immense achievement . . . Wilfred Owen wrote of his Great War verse: 'My subject is war, and the pity of war. The poetry is in the pity.' Flanagan's triumph is to find poetry without any pity at all.' - Geordie Williamson, The Australian

‘A story of war and star-crossed lovers, the novel is also a profound meditation on life and time, memory and forgetting . . . a magnificent achievement.' - Katharine England, Adelaide Advertiser

'A masterpiece . . . The Narrow Road is an extraordinary piece of writing and a high point in an already distinguished career.' - Michael Williams, The Guardian
