9780141016382: Dig

In the long hot summer of 1939 Britain is preparing for war. But on a riverside farm in Suffolk there is excitement of another kind: Mrs Petty, the widowed farmer, has had her hunch proved correct that the strange mounds on her land hold buried treasure. As the dig proceeds against a background of mounting national anxiety, it becomes clear though that this is no ordinary find ... And pretty soon the discovery leads to all kinds of jealousies and tensions. John Preston's recreation of the Sutton Hoo dig - the greatest Anglo-Saxon discovery ever in Britain - brilliantly and comically dramatizes three months of intense activity when locals fought outsiders, professionals thwarted amateurs, and love and rivaly flourished in equal measure

About the Author :

John Preston is a former Arts Editor of the Evening Standard and the Sunday Telegraph. For ten years he was the Sunday Telegraph's television critic and one of its chief feature writers. He is the author of a travel book and four novels. His most recent novel, The Dig, is about to be made into a feature film starring Cate Blanchett.

Review :

Very fine, engrossing, exquisitely original * Ian McEwan * An enthralling story of love and loss, a real literary treasure. One of the most original novels of the year * Robert Harris * You don't need to be in archaeology - this is a tale of rivalry, loss and thwarted love. It's so absorbing that I read right through lunchtime one day, and it's not often I miss a meal * Nigella Lawson * A rich vein of dry humour runs throughout * Evening Standard * Intriguing, tender and entertaining ... easily Preston's best * Independent * A delicate, quietly affecting human drama * Daily Mail * A moving novel that coheres wonderully as it progresses * Spectator * A delicate evocation of a vanished era * Sunday Times * Wonderful, evocative. From this simple tale of dirt, Preston has produced the finest gold. He keeps an iron grip on the reader's attention * Observer * Beatutifully written...there is a true and wonderful ending to the story -- Bill Wyman * Mail on Sunday * Wistful and poignant. A masterpiece in Chekhovian understatement * Times Literary Supplement * Exciting, evocative and beautifully written. A treasure in itself * Griff Rhys Jones * Shimmers with longing and regret . . . Preston writes with economical grace . . . He has written a kind of universal chamber piece, small in detail, beautifully made and liable to linger on in the heart and the mind. It is something utterly unfamiliar, and quite wonderful. -- Michael Pye * The New York Times Book Review * An enthralling story of love and loss, a real literary treasure. One of the most original novels of the year * Robert Harris *
