Reviews

Everyone should read Geraldine Brooks * Guardian *
There's something bordering on the supernatural about Geraldine Brooks. She seems able to transport herself back to earlier time periods, to time travel. Sometimes, reading her work, she draws you so thoroughly into another era that you swear she's actually lived in it. -- Matthew Gilbert * The Boston Globe *
Brook is a master at bringing the past alive . . . in [her] skillful hands the issues of the past echo our own deepest concerns: love and loss, drama and tragedy, chaos and brutality. -- Alice Hoffman * The Washington Post *
One of our most supple and insightful novelists . . . Brooks is an adventurous of a novelist as she once was a journalist . . . her journalistic sense of story has remained vibrant. -- Jane Smiley * The New York Times Book Review *
Few fiction writers travel across territory as vast as that staked out by the intrepid Geraldine Brooks . . . There's a romance between Brooks and the world, and her writing is as full of heart and curiosity as it is intelligence and judgement . . . her appetite for detail, her wanting to know how things work and why they happened, is enormous. -- Carrie Brown * The Boston Globe *
I loved this book so much - an important book, gorgeous, full of love . . . a super smart book that will keep you up all night -- Ann Patchett
Reveals the truth behind the spirit, obsession and injustice across American history * The Handbook *
Thrilling . . . a book about the power and pain of words -- Alexandra Jacobs * New York Times *
Horse isn't just an animal story-it's a moving narrative about race and art. * Time *
This is historical fiction at its finest, connecting threads of the past with the present to illuminate that essentially human something . . . Calling all horse girls: This is the story of the most important racehorse you've never heard of, but it's also so much more than that. * Good Housekeeping *
Brilliantly varied and with a galloping pace * Mail on Sunday *
The wonderful story of an extraordinary real-life racehorse... Brooks moves seamlessly between different times and places... the attention to historical details is impressive * Racing Post *
