'A piece of invention as original as any of Tolkien's or C.S.
Lewis's' New Statesman'I have gone to look for a lion.' In a world where lions have become extinct, the map-maker Jachin-Boaz nevertheless abandons his wife and son to find one, leaving just this note.
But his decision has unexpected consequences. He will be pursued by his son, Boaz-Jachin, and by something else: a tawny-skinned, amber-eyed beast from another place and time, a bringer of life and death. 'Magic at work ... Funny as well as beautiful' Irish Times'Hoban is unclassifiable, thank goodness.
His narrative is so minutely and compellingly realistic that after a time you cease to notice that he has stood reality on its head' Sunday Times
