Another World: A Novel

'“[Hanley’s writing is] uncompromising, stark, too truthful to be comfortable.” —Anthony Burgess   “[Hanley was] not British, not American, not South African, not Ebury Street, not Chicago. Just language like a good clean cyclone.” —William Faulkner   “A modernist master.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Writing with excellence as always, [Hanley] is perceptive and compassionate.” —Publishers Weekly   “The richness of the humour and the peculiar brilliance of Mr Hanley’s gifts make this a minor masterpiece.” —The Daily Telegraph   “A masterly book . . . The people survive and have tremendous value. . . . His effects are economical and sure and profound.” —The New York Times Book Review   “A marvellously eccentric and entertaining novel about love.” —New York Sunday News   “Throughout Another World there are patches of vivid and thoughtful prose and uniquely eccentric characterisations. . . . Wonderfully suggestive imagery.” —The Washington Post   “[Hanley is] a novelist of distinction and originality.” —E. M. Forster   “[Hanley’s] language, intense and compassionate as his world is diseased and vicious, reveals an intense understanding of the cesspool of human nature and the capacity for good and bad, even at once.” —The List (Edinburgh)   “[Hanley was the creator of] some of the most serious and emotionally demanding novels in our language this century.” —The Sunday Correspondent   “Hanley is one of the most able and influential writers in the English language.” —The Boston Globe   “[Hanley] is that rarity of rarities: a genuine original.” —The New York Times Book Review   “[Hanley] is one of the most consistently praised and least-known novelists in the English-speaking world.” —Time'
