Featherbones is an ethereal love song to a city by the sea. Thomas Browns beautiful novel depicts a liminal world of statues, drownings and winged creatures. Its also a real page turner. I love this book. Rebecca Smith, author of The Bluebird Café This is an exquisitely written novel; deft, poised, and with a writers ear for the rhythms of the world around us. Featherbones does the always-difficult job of making the strange familiar, while asking us to attend again to the things we think we know. William May, author and lecturer I loved the use of language, I loved the story and above all I loved the constant sensation that I was walking on the top of the dividing wall between reality and dream and imagination and past and present and future. I want to live on that wall for the rest of my life. Bookrazy blog What to call this experience? Magical realism doesnt quite fit right. Magical-psychological-philosophical-realism. Maybe. This is a book that will be unlike any other that you have read. There are some very well crafted passages in this book, and some amazing uses of language. It is really the beautiful language, in my opinion, that makes this a book worth the time to read and share with others. I liked the characters ... the way the story developed and the way the reader is never quite sure if what is happening is actual reality or just the imaginings of a confused mind. If you enjoy reading books that make you think, and make you wonder at the authors ability to turn every day ordinary into something else, something a bit more extraordinary, then I recommend this book to you. Ionia Martin, Readful things blog The book Felix walks the same way to work through Southampton every morning, and the same way home again in the evenings. His life up to this point feels like one day repeated over and over; a speck of silt caught in the citys muddied waters. Sometimes it is all he can do to sit and watch while the urban sprawl races indifferently around him. But when the city stares back at him, one evening after work, everything changes.  He doesnt see the statues head move, but he feels its eyes on him, studying him from its lofty perch in East Park. From then on he continues to glimpse it, or something like it, encroaching with every visitation. With it come memories, spilling through the streets, crawling through the dark, haunting his night-time flat, until he isnt quite sure what is real anymore and what is imagined, in this hard, grey place where the gulls watch him sleep...
