Review:

"If you haven't read David Storey's 1976 winner Saville read it at once, it is the best of all the Bookers" (Observer)

"A tremendous novel" (The Economist)

"A marvellous evocation of place and character... This is a book made more than usually remarkable by its intensity of feeling" (Daily Telegraph)

"If you are looking for an intellectual and artistic honesty, a patient thoughtfulness and detailed insight into other lives, a controlled drama of ordinary and extraordinary people in realised England, this novel will delight and move you" (Guardian)

""Saville" is a splendid novel, replete with virtues beyond its appeal to those otherwise undiscriminating readers who demand stories about nice people." (Peter S. Prescott Newsweek)
