  • Binet's best book yet: the work of a major writer just hitting his stride. A delightful counterfactual novel. *****

    Tim Smith-Laing, Daily Telegraph
  • One of the most successful French writers of his generation... a wild romp of a book that turns history on its head

  • Characteristically ambitious, brilliant...Combining all the pleasure of a period romp with vital questions about our shared origin stories...a triumph

  • Tremendous fun.

  • Civilisations provides a whole series of what-ifs, concertinaing known facts in new and surprising ways
