Reviews

  • This novel really sang to me....artfully sculpted, more layered, more powerfully elegiac. This is a really beautiful novel.

    Barbara Trapido
  • Pears is a remarkable prose stylist...Landed offers rich pickings.

    The Times
  • Pears is back on top form in this beautifully crafted story...Thrillingly well-observed...The ending is a powerful blend of poignancy and moral ambivalence... If one of the tasks of a novelist is to open our eyes to the world around us, Pears has executed that task with rare aplomb.

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Beautifully and evocatively written

    Scotsman
  • powerful: it shows the grief that overwhelms a parent at the death of a child and...the darkness that lies beneath the surface of a superficially happy family...There is no denying Pears' achievement in the character of Owen, a raw, desperate man even before he is filled with grief, and his deeply poetic descriptions of an old-fashioned life on the land.
