About the Author:

Ian McGuire grew up near Hull and studied at the University of Manchester and the University of Virginia, USA. He is a founder and co-director of the University of Manchester's Centre for New Writing. His stories have been published in the Chicago Review, Paris Review and elsewhere, and his first novel was Incredible Bodies. The North Water is his second novel.

Review:

'A superbly compelling suspense narrative' -- Irish Times 'Terrific - seamed with pitch-black humour and possessed of a momentum that's kept up to the final scene' -- Daily Mail 'The North Water has exceptional power and energy' -- Sunday Times 'Full of twists, turns, period detail and strong characters' -- The Times 'Horrifically gripping' -- Independent on Sunday 'A novel that takes us to the limits of flesh and blood. Utterly convincing and compelling, remorselessly vivid and insidiously witty.' -- Martin Amis 'A stunning novel that snares the reader from the outset and keeps the tightest grip until its bitter end' -- Financial Times
