Praise for Edward Hogan
‘A major new talent’ – Hilary Mantel
“Ed Hogan’s novels, Blackmoor and The Hunger Trace, are unhurriedly moving, quiet but with a deep sense of England and its landscape, and of the subtle hidden traumas of their characters.”
Ross Raisin, Granta-Anointed Best Young British Novelists on Their Favorite Young British Writers’ Flavorwire
‘The Granta judges are mad to leave out Joe Dunthorne, Owen Sheers, Gwendoline Riley, Courttia Newland, Nick Laird and Edward Hogan. These are not passing fancies; they are excellent authors who have established their excellence and are real presences in British writing.’
