Something Like a House

»Phrase-making of breathtaking beauty jostles with stunted English, poetic finesse with language of purely functional use. And all the time you are spell-bound, mesmerised by a disturbing arrhythmia, the most enduringly unsettling aspect of this haunting and original novel.» — Charlie Hill, The Independent on Sunday

»I suspect this book will be compared with Robinson Crusoe (the outsider building his own abode) and Lord of the Flies (the long-term effects of context on individual mortality). It is a profound and sophisticated work of fiction.» — Robert MacFarlane, The Observer

»Smith’s sparse narrative well evokes the bleak environment…» — Lisa Darnell, First Novels, The Guardian

»Smith’s real achievement is to have created a work that is dense with politics, history and science, but which has a ring of absolute truth about it. It reads not so much as a novel about an experience but as one that renders the experience itself — startling, strange, unmediated.» — Melissa Denes, The Daily Telegraph
