‘Part thriller, part treasure hunt and part love story … Profound and heartbreaking’ Sunday Times‘A terrific, engrossing novel’ Roddy Doyle‘A masterpiece’ Sebastian Barry‘A rich, strange book. Very truthful and moving’ Tessa Hadley‘Part thriller, part treasure hunt and part love story … Profound and heartbreaking’ Sunday Times‘A terrific, engrossing novel’ Roddy Doyle‘A masterpiece’ Sebastian Barry‘A rich, strange book. Very truthful and moving’ Tessa HadleyThe new novel about the transformative power of art, the weight of history and the strange connection we make with one another, from the author of The Speckled People.The narrator of The Pages is not a human but a book: a first edition of Joseph Roth’s masterpiece Rebellion, rescued from a Nazi book-burning in 1933. In recounting its history, it tells a multitude of stories: of Andreas, the character who lives in its pages; of its current owner, a woman whose discovery of a hand-drawn map in the book begins a thrilling mystery; and of Roth himself, a writer on the run. Together, they form a compelling story about art, nationalism, the weight of history, and the strange connections between us.‘This book simply must be read. It is magnificent’ Irish Independent‘A powerful, powerful piece of work’ Colum McCannPraise for The Pages:'Brilliant. It's a lovely, rich, strange book, very truthful and moving, with a beautiful ending' Tessa Hadley‘It is … a masterpiece. The Alignment of the destructive forces of the 1920s and the 2020s in this virtuoso work are uncanny and, frankly, alarming. This book simply must be read. It is magnificent’ Sunday Independent‘A classic Joseph Roth novel takes centre stage in this mix of thriller, treasure hunt and love story…profound and heart-breaking’ Sunday Times'A powerful, powerful piece of work. A wounded book making its own book. It brings so much to life – Joseph Roth, Chechnya, Germany, the art of writing, the whole notion of banning books, the lips of the past speaking to the present' Colum McCann'A terrific, engrossing novel. I love the narrator – such a great character – and the structure is clever and carefully woven, and very satisfying' Roddy Doyle'An ingenious conceit' John Banville'A masterpiece. Full of great sentences. But also sort of obliteratingly moving, strange, and right' Sebastian Barry‘Wonderful. It is as if Hugo Hamilton has invented a new form’ Neil Jordan, author of Carnivalesque‘Although ideas of memory, legacy and repetition — the indelible imprints of history — fill The Pages, it moves with a fast and fluid gait … It reminds us that, even in an age when people “live in a rush to forget” (Roth’s words), we must read the book of the past in order to understand the present’ Boyd Tonkin, Financial Times‘The form itself – a novel narrated by a novel – is so cunningly realised that it’s accepted almost immediately. It also inspires the thought: why are more novels not told like this? … it’s a fascinating work of real depth that combines biography, fiction and history to create a manifesto for the importance of literature in the times of political dismay’ Business PostHugo Hamilton is the author of a bestselling memoir, The Speckled People, the story of his German-Irish childhood in Dublin, where he was prohibited by his revolutionary father from speaking English. He has written nine novels, two memoirs, a collection of short stories and three stage plays. His work has won international awards, including the French Prix Femina étranger, the Italian premio Giuseppe Berto and DAAD scholarship in Berlin. Hamilton is a member of Aosdána and lives in Dublin.· A stunning novel from Hugo Hamilton that explores the ability of literature to form connections across time and geography · The Pages inverts what we might expect from a novel. Formally daring – the narrator is an actual book itself, Joseph Roth's Rebellion – it is a profound and playful tribute to the possibilities of storytelling and its endurance · Film rights have been bought by Neil Jordan – The End of the Affair, The Crying Game, Interview with a VampireCompetition: by;kevin barry;sebastian barry;roddy doyle;megan nolan;naoise dolan;colin barrett;john banville;douglas stuart;john grisham;tessa hadley. shuggie bain;sparring partners;paddy clarke;days without end;night boat to tangier;city of bohane;pure gold;young skins;a star called henry;free love
