Hand me down World 'extraordinary' - Guardian

"There's a brutal and even uncomfortable integrity to a novel in which many fictional conventions are eschewed. Hand Me Down World is not an overtly intellectual exercise, yet it demands that the reader think and then think again. Jones is a daring writer who can be relied on to ignore expectation, and is becoming one of the most interesting, honest and thought-provoking novelists working today."

Brilliant review of Lloyd Jones' latest novel from The Guardian

And every word of the review is true. I read it a few months ago (was lucky enough to be lent a proof copy) and it's taken up residence in my mind. An amazing book.
