  • Pyrotechnic brilliance

    Daily Mail
  • Ambitious, powerful... There is much to enjoy and admire in this novel... Flanagan writes with a startling brilliance

  • A fiercely well-observed account of the psychological twists and turns, the stress points and the double-binds, of familial love

    Daily Telegraph
  • Richard Flanagan is one of the greatest writers at work in the world today - I admire him and his writing immensely. The Living Sea of Waking Dreams is a haunting, urgent and important book about our broken and confusing age

    James Rebanks
  • Striking... brilliantly done... Flanagan is wise enough to place his wider concerns, and the accompanying magic realism within the sturdy framework of a conventional family narrative
