Review:

"The writing leaps off the page...it throws up something so original and striking that it takes up permanent residence in a reader's head" -- Tim Martin Daily Telegraph "Runt is a bungee-jump plummet from modern sophistication into something lurking below, where fantasy takes flesh and ancient knowledge prevails" -- Jennie Renton Sunday Herald "Runt deserves the hackneyed description 'tour de force' ... it demonstrates Griffiths, a gritty realist, in complete command of the dark despairing gloop that so often smothers human lives" -- Tom Adair Scotsman "You would have to go back to Thomas Hardy to find a British writer who evokes a landscape so completely" Time Out "Evolutionary psychology meets mythology in this short, strange, savage novel... Niall Griffiths's prose enchants you" Guardian
