Andrew Miller’s Pure is the 2011 Costa Book of the Year. It is a beautifully written book and a flawless testimony to Andrew’s skill as a writer of exceptional command. Set in pre-revolutionary France,  Pure charts the demolition of one of the city’s oldest cemeteries and brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of a country on the eve of monumental historical change. Andrew’s writing is a delight; effortless anticipation of the coming revolution is melded with skilful handling of the intricate turns and anxieties of everyday life. Pure  is a gem of engrossing historical detail and poetic grace.

“Intelligent, serious and thought-provoking, but also entertaining, Andrew Miller’s Pure is the best kind of historical novel” – The Guardian
