About this title

Synopsis:

Two men's wild adventures through the gutters of London and the Scottish Highlands. The story is set in 1795, whilst the rest of Europe is in turmoil - Goya is deaf, De Quincy is a depraved prepubescent and the young Ludwig von Beethoven is wowing them in Vienna with his second piano concerto.

From the Back Cover:

"Ribald, hilarious, exotic—an engrossing flight of the literary imagination."
—Los Angeles Times

"Water Music does for fiction what Raiders of the Lost Ark did for film. . . . Boyle is an adept plotter, a crazed humorist, and a fierce describer."
—The Boston Globe

"High comic fiction . . . Boyle is a writer of considerable talent. He pulls off his most implausible inventions with wit, a perfect sense of timing, and his considerable linguistic gifts."
—The Washington Post
