'Moving and triumphant
— Sunday Telegraph
'Riveting... a story so compelling, you resist leaving it.'
'An intense and frequently dramatic novel... this story of love, betrayal and redemption is a significant achievement.’
— Publishers Weekly (USA)
‘Like Pat Barker’s Booker Winner, 'The Ghost Road', 'The Hiding Room' does not look back nostalgically. It is an astringent, often brutal, illustration of how events shape individual lives and even bring them into being.’
— Carole Mansur, the Daily Telegraph
‘The Hiding Room’s' impressive strength is that Wilson does not imitate Greene, in his own distinctive terms… he continues him.’
— LA Times
‘The rewards of reading… Jonathan Wilson’s superb novel… are almost as equalled by the pleasure of recalling It.’
— Boston Sunday Globe
Published in the USA by Penguin, this is the first UK paperback publication.
