9780099584551: I Refuse

I refuse to compromise.

I refuse to forgive.

I refuse to forget.

The major new novel from the author of Out Stealing Horses

‘Tommy. How long have we been friends.’

‘All of our lives,’ Tommy said.

‘I can’t remember us ever not being friends. When would that have been.’ Jim said. ‘I think it could last the rest of our lives,’ he said carefully, in a low voice. ‘Don’t you think.’

‘It will last if we want it to. It depends on us. We can be friends for as long as we want to.’

Tommy’s mother has gone. She walked out into the snow one night, leaving him and his sisters with their violent father. Without his best friend Jim, Tommy would be in trouble. But Jim has challenges of his own which will disrupt their precious friendship.

A TLS and Guardian Book of the Year

Review:

"An extraordinarily humane work…I Refuse will lodge in the heart and remain there" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

"A poignant, melancholic novel about the bonds forged and broken between friends and family members" (Lucy Scholes Independent)

"Relentless, often shocking, but always satisfying…telling each man’s story with brutal honesty and poignantly reinforcing a sense of existential malaise" (Matthew Bremner Financial Times)

"Petterson’s signature technique lies in drawing the most zigzag line imaginable through narrative chronology but the effect is not of confusion, rather of a dense, layered complexity: it is the realist novel form’s mimetic faithfulness to lie itself" (Neel Mukherjee Guardian)

"The suspense isn't in the plot but in the prose, with its extraordinary looping sentences" (Blake Morrison Guardian Books of the Year)

Book Description:

I refuse to compromise.
