    'This novel starts at maximum force -- and then it really gets going. I can't remember when I last read a novel of such narrative intensity; an unflinching account of a catastrophic, violent, black-comic, transformative year in the history of one broken American family. Flat-out amazing.' Salman Rushdie

Other authors shortlisted included Hilary Mantel, Barbara Kingsolver and Kate Atkinson, the judges describing the shortlist as "exceptionally strong".
