WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT was one of the most incredibly exciting debuts in recent years, from an extraordinary new voice in fiction.
Spanning four decades, from 1968 onwards, this is the story of a fabulous but flawed family and the slew of ordinary and extraordinary incidents that shape their everyday lives.
It is a story about childhood and growing up, loss of innocence, eccentricity, familial ties and friendships, love and life.
Stripped down to its bare bones, it's about the unbreakable bond between a brother and sister.
Gloriously offbeat... Winman's narrative voice is beautifully true, with a child's unsentimental clarity. A superb debut. - The Times
Beguiling... you can't quite get the voice out of your head. - Daily Mail
Captivating... rendered with an appealing frankness, precision and emotional acuity. - Observer
Thronging with incident, wonder and outr? language... sharply funny, whimsical and innovative. - The Guardian
