What the Critics are Saying

Lean Fall Stand is a beautiful piece of work and should win a roomful of prizes. Jon McGregor writes plainly and exactly, like a poet, and the precision of his writing makes every heartbeat register. The quality of his attention is a flicker of light around the fragile human condition, and it leaves the reader moved and subtly changed, as if she had become part of the story

Hilary Mantel

Luster is entirely remarkable, and the most delicious novel I've read. I couldn't get enough of Raven Leilani's starkly accurate portrayal of the nuances of being a young woman today.

Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie

A spectacular book ... It does what Jon McGregor does so well: examine the widening ripples of a single event. I read it again, as soon as I'd finished

Maggie O'Farrell, author of Hamnet

Jon McGregor has crafted a unique narrative, encompassing frozen wastes & altered interior landscapes. The most gripping piece of writing I've read in a long time: Sit. Read. Applaud
