Staff Reviews


The Son is one of the best new books I’ve read in a long, long time. I’ve described it to people as “Cormac meets McMurtry” but even that is selling it short. A cross-generational tale that takes us from the mid 19th century up to the present day, it also has its hints of Giant and East of Eden. It’s an epic tale for an epic state full of epic people.

“Epic yet intimate, Meyer's The Son is the best kind of historical fiction. Vivid characters and great storytelling bring to life a distant time and place, while the themes and issues explored are completely relevant to our time. The interwoven perspectives of the three generations of the McCullough family create a counterpoint as each comments on the others, their mores, and their expectations and how these change over time. This is what great literature should be: a page-turner with a serious moral purpose.”
