Product Description:

Title: Standing Pool <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Adam Thorpe <>Publisher: VINTAGE

Review:

"Superior novel...wincingly precise in his imagery and technically adept... An electric and darkly gleeful read" ( Daily Mail)

" An immensely clever, tragicomic novel...a rich meditation on past and present colonial politics... What resonates for me is what I greatly admire in all Thorpe's work: the complex depth, and the texture and poetry of his storytelling language" ( Financial Times)

"An intimate depiction of family life... Vivid and luminous" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Because this is Adam Thorpe, there are only two things you know for certain: that the writing will be gorgeous, silky-smooth; and that the plot will be entirely original, defying categorisation...enjoy" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"An intricate fiction which reminds us gently that war wrecks lives in ways too tangled to anticipate" ( Times Literary Supplement)
