The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet (Reif Larsen)
CCV: "An endearing and original coming-of-age story"--Margaret Reynolds, The Times
"...a wilfully original and diverting book, full of carefully penned ephemera."--Tim Adams, The Observer
"The tale of map-obsessed outcast TS Spivet is captivating but it's the intricate illustrations...that make this a rewardingly unique read"--Shortlist
"Larsen's achievement is to have created a quirky, engaging, painfully vulnerable hero... a book that's truly lovely to look at..."--Daily Mail
"...the real star of the show is Reif Larson, a first time American novelist… Some of the sly coming-of-age humour is reminiscent of Huckleberry Finn, but it is also very much a modern novel"--Sunday Telegraph
'Terrific and frequently hilarious. A novel in which truth and love throb at the corners of our eyes.'
