'It's unlikely that a more intelligent, amusing and yet disturbing novel will appear this autumn.'Scotsman

On The Island, just as on many other islands, marriages are unhappy, people fall in love and the seasons pass. The town of Aberdeen is no different, until the earthquakes. These seismic ripples tear down houses, forge bonds, and shake the foundations of humanity and religion. And in the midst of it all, Nellie and Ingrid fall in love.

In Aftershocks A. N. Wilson offers a portrait of nature, death and morality. Moved by the real losses of the Christchurch earthquake, this is an extraordinary novel about a community profoundly linked to the land it lives on.

'Witty, erudite and artful.' Spectator

MEDIA REVIEWS
It's unlikely that a more intelligent, amusing and yet disturbing novel will appear this autumn. * Scotsman *
Wilson is witty, erudite and artful. * Spectator *
Wilson has crafted an unusual, intriguing narrative, filled with flashes of insight and humour * Literary Review *
A joyfully eccentric book, stuffed with learning and wisdom. * The Times *
Aftershocks is crafted with great elegance and is fizzing with ideas, as Wilson zig-zags between Euripides, Christianity, sex and anthropology with an intellectual fluency few of his contemporaries could hope to match. * Mail on Sunday *
A teasing, cerebral novel which has much to say about religion, death and loss. * Country and Townhouse, Best Books of 2018 *
Delightful and funny * The Catholic Herald, Allan Massie *
Beautifully written * Allan Massie, The Scotsman *
