What if John Milton, Cromwell's secretary, anticipating the King's return to London, had decided to flee England in order to avoid imprisonment or death? What if he had crossed the ocean and joined the Puritans recently settled in New England? From this idea Peter Ackroyd creates an enthralling story of conflict, treachery, hypocrisy and greed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"More concise and sardonic than Hawksmoor and Chatterton, and even more mysteriously brilliant, Milton in America fills the reader's mind with images of extraordinary vividness" -- John Bayley * The Times *
"A strikingly clever premise for a novel... Ackroyd's prose fizzes and sparkles as brightly as an electrical misconnection" -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett * Independent *
"Consistently funny. Ackroyd's comic genius... is allowed to let rip, with wonderfully enjoyable gusto" -- A.N.Wilson * Literary Review *
"A startlingly good novel... authentically tragic and unforgettable" -- Victoria Glendinning * Daily Telegraph *
