Press
Creating some of the finest work of his career is David Almond in The Colour of the Sun (Hodder), a semi-autobiographical novel that showcases his transcendent, otherworldly storytelling. Over the course of a single summer's day, protagonist Davie's journey through his home town and into the sunlit hills shows us life, death and the wonder of the everyday. * The Guardian * The Colour of the Sun is really, really something. * Woman's Way * David Almond at his finest...this is a lyrical and moving story about a boy on the cusp of manhood...There is a touching innocence to this book and a warmth that glows from every page. -- Beth Goodyear * The Scotsman * brilliantly suspenseful until the end...He [David Almond] is that rare thing - a writer of lucid, mature elegance, who can still see the world through adolescent eyes. -- Emily Bearn * The Daily Telegraph * The book explores liminal spaces: the edgelands between child and adult, being and seeming, life and death and the human and natural worlds. * The Guardian *
