4th Estate’s 30 from 30: The Northern Clemency

We asked 4th Estate staff to write 30 words on one of 30 classic 4th Estate titles. Here’s Key Account Manager Vanessa Bloor on ‘The Northern Clemency‘ by Philip Hensher

‘One of my all time favourite novels about English family life, The Northern Clemency is an extraordinarily accomplished novel featuring a fascinating and richly portrayed cast. It’s moving and also very funny – one scene in particular will stick with me forever. I could not put it down.’
