“Gulp it down; it beats getting drunk.” – Salman Rushdie on “Water Music”. “If Dickens were alive today he would be writing this sort of book.’ – Rosie Boycott, “Books of the Year”, “The Times”, on “Tortilla Curtain.” Boyle as the equal of Robertson Davies and John Irving. You only hope the Coen Brothers get the film rights, so that this most thrillingly visual of American storytellers is given the movie he deserves’ “Guardian” on “Riven Rock”. “surreal, daring and compassionate. Easily one of the best books of this year” – “Daily Mail” on “A Friend of the Earth”. Maverick, unpredictable and accomplished, T.C.
