Some advance praise for Hild…

I’ve been posting chunks of early reviews etc. on the Hild page of my main blog but thought I’d include a few snippets here to whet your appetite:

“What a fabulous book! … I fell into this world completely and was sorry to come out. Truly, truly remarkable.” — Karen Joy Fowler

“Vivid, vital, and visceral, Hild’s history reads like a thriller.” — Val McDermid

“The historical setting feels so real that it seemed that I was walking across the living landscape of seventh-century Britain… Brilliant stuff!” — Tim Clarkson

Hild is not just one of the best historical novels I have ever read—I think it’s one of the best novels, period.” — Dorothy Allison

“Griffith goes boldly into the territory, lingering over landscape, indulging the senses…in a sweeping panorama of peasants working, women weaving, children at play, and soldiers in battle.” — Publishers Weekly

It won’t be out in the US until 12 November 2013 (that’s 11.12.13 for those who like that sort of thing). But it’s available for pre-order. If you follow the link, you’ll see I’ve built a huge list of independent stores in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. But I’d love to get more suggestions for bookshops outside the US.
