Review:

" Submergence is writing of awesome power. In a profound meditation on cruelty, pity, belief, art, science, hope, love and mortality, the novel's truths settle in your consciousness, perhaps never to be forgotten."--Nicholas Royle, The Independent

"It's the only fiction I've read in the last few years that has left me open-mouthed. Here are the kind of revelations that can make our heads hurt. Its central idea, brilliantly articulated, is that when it comes to geopolitics, the human body, our importance on the planet, the dark seething depths of the Atlantic Ocean, and the equally inscrutable contents of our own hearts, we really don't know the half of it."--David Hepworth, Word Magazine

"The influence of the great German original WG Sebald breathes through the book, yet this is to Ledgard's advantage. There is no disputing that Ledgard is an elegant, determinedly intellectual and disciplined writer, yet there is also immense humanity in this novel, which deserves to be one of the strongest challengers for this year's Man Booker Prize. Fiction at its finest recognises no boundaries, and here is an artist's novel that achieves the ultimate goal of any writer: it makes us pause and think, and think again"--Eileen Battersby, The Irish Times

Book Description:

The second novel by the author of the highly praised Giraffe.
