Review:

'The Insult is one of those rare, perfect, all-consuming books where your life takes on a new colour and texture for the days you are in its thrall' Mail on Sunday 'An astonishing exploration into the blurred hinterland where fiction meets fantasy ... Both crisply precise and extravagantly daring ... The Insult is a remarkable achievement' Sunday Telegraph 'A stunning premise, brilliantly unravelled ... It confirms Thomson in the front rank of English authors' Observer 'The Insult met every requirement I felt I could possibly have of a novel ... Breathtakingly clever' The Times

Book Description:

The utterly engrossing and disturbing novel from the author of Divided Kingdom
