The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz

Russell Hoban (Author)

Description

'A piece of invention as original as any of Tolkien's or C.S. Lewis's' New Statesman

'I have gone to look for a lion.' In a world where lions have become extinct, the map-maker Jachin-Boaz nevertheless abandons his wife and son to find one, leaving just this note. But his decision has unexpected consequences. He will be pursued by his son, Boaz-Jachin, and by something else: a tawny-skinned, amber-eyed beast from another place and time, a bringer of life and death.

'Magic at work ... Funny as well as beautiful' Irish Times

'Hoban is unclassifiable, thank goodness. His narrative is so minutely and compellingly realistic that after a time you cease to notice that he has stood reality on its head' Sunday Times
