The late David Nobbs, author of Reggie Perrin – ‘On a nightmare train journey home, luckily I had a book with me. It was called King Crow. It saved my sanity. I think I would have been riveted by this even if I hated birds. Lovely stuff. Very very good. Thank you.’
David Peace – ‘KING CROW is a gripping and moving story told in a unique, yet authentic Northern voice. It is a brilliant first novel and the best debut I have read in a long time. I am excited and intrigued about what Michael Stewart will write next.
Nick Ahad, Yorkshire Post – ‘My bus stop is approaching, but there are five pages of King Crow left. What’s the decision? I miss my stop to finish the novel… a piece of work that rattles along at breakneck speed… a gripping read… will keep readers intrigued right to the end.’
Melvin Burgess, author of ‘Junk’ – ‘Michael Stewart is a fascinating new voice, and King Crow is a fine debut novel. Part action thriller, part psychological drama, part birding manual, I’ve come across nothing quite like it. It’s a fascinating example of modern fiction at its innovative best.’
‘A compelling read’ – Blog: Ribble Babel
