Reviews

  • "Europa is a full and rounded and very disturbing novel…guaranteed to intrigue and, more often than not, have you squirming and wincing."

    The Times
  • "Sheer enjoyment... Doffing his hat to Joyce and Beckett, Parks really hits his stride"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "The best thing about Europa is the voice Tim Parks conjures up: Marlow's wry, defeated reason keeps you turning the pages... A forlorn but seductive voice, reminding us that it is far easier to unite a sprawling continent than the few cubic metres that contain a human soul"

    Sunday Times
  • "The triumph of the work is its discomforting portrayal of an agile mind hampered by the twin shackles of longing and disgust... Europa is that rare beast, a book which demands and withstands a second reading"
