  • What the critics say

    Beautifully constructed ... a novel of true resonance and power This novel is beautifully hypnotic in its movements, from the grand (between two continents, across three centuries) to the most subtle. Silkily threading together public events and private feelings, TransAtlantic says no to death with every line. Those who can't see the point of historical novels will find their answer here: in all intelligent fiction, the past has not passed Expertly constructed ... At its best, as in the superbly rendered early scene of Alcock and Brown's flight, the prose is poetically vivid Mark O'Connell Few contemporary writers are better at subtracting the sublime from the base ... A kind of cat's cradle of transatlantic journeys, all connected, all built on another thing Hermione Hoby A challenging, beautifully woven novel about the real and imagined. Fans of Ian McEwan will love it Viv Groskop McCann is no stranger to literary prizes - but if I were him, I'd start clearing my mantelpiece for a few more James Walton McCann makes us wonder at how his characters get from A to B; he encourages us to see how journeys elicit distinctions and closeness between people . He is especially striking when he describes the weather: the wind muscles through the grass; clouds perform a curtsy. He has a telegraphic style of transmitting historical content - Freya Johnston Colum McCann is a very gifted, charming writer; in full, rhapsodic-onrush mode, he is hard to resist. He coins a good phrase... TransAtlantic is deft, well crafted, and broad in its imaginative range. The many people who loved his last novel will certainly enjoy this one A marvellously engrossing journey, studded with ideas and lyrical treats It is a record not of great men and great moments but of small, elegant details and personal loss McCann's prose aspires towards the atmospheric and descriptive...Stylistically, McCann shares a great deal with Michael Ondaatje, while the presence of Don DeLillo, both in form and content, is also apparent ... McCann is drawn to lives lived, and his vivid, reactive and heartfelt fiction lives and breathes, sighs and weeps. Above all, his characters remember the past and contemplate the future Blending fact and fiction with a poet's precision ... There's no doubting the novel's lyrical and emotional power though McCann's ability to move through such vastly differing places and personalities is as uncanny as it is relentless. Most of the novel is held remarkably together by only the most delicate of strands, through the gentle echoes resonating between the book's diverse wandering characters ... What drives the novel - like all of McCann's fiction - is simply the author's sturdy, humane, unfailing knack for animating period and place in the inner minutiae of individual lives Beautifully poignant Majestic A vivid novel of three personal stories intricately woven together around the first transatlantic flight History comes vividly to life in a majestic work whose characters traverse the Atlantic It is, simply, perfect. McCann's writing is sublime; his images shine A shamelessly daring, ambitious epic of a novel ... McCann's impulse is towards a Joycean magnanimity, affirmativeness and bravery ... McCann is at the height of his lyrical powers ... Though it may sound forbiddingly schematic , TransAtlantic 's narrative strands are deftly linked through the fictional Ehrlich family. Far from being a celebration of historical acts of derring-do, McCann's ambitious, touching and occasionally joyous novel is a paean to self-determination in all its forms Daragh Reddin The forces at work in our lives, Colum McCann makes arrestingly clear, begin long before we're born. Several wider thematic links also emerge - and so slyly that days after finishing the book, you're still making them
    Sheena Davit and Mary Carr A very refined piece of writing Philip Hensher The book I've enjoyed most this year Andrew Marr History comes vividly alive in a majestic work
