Shortlisted for the inaugural Walter Scott Prize for historical fiction 2010.

 

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2009.

 

A fictionalised account of an asylum on the edge of Epping Forest where the poet John Clare spent some time. Tennyson visits the asylum adding that extra sense of reality but it is the story of the doctor Matthew Allen and his humane care for the patients in a time where such care was rare that makes this novel a pleasure to read.
