January, 1982. Thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor - covert stammerer and reluctant poet - anticipates a stultifying year in his backwater English village. But he hasn't reckoned with bullies, simmering family discord, the Falklands War, a threatened gypsy invasion and those mysterious entities known as girls. Charting thirteen months in the black hole between childhood and adolescence, this is a captivating novel, wry, painful and vibrant with the stuff of life.

Black Swan Green's 'I love 1982' nostalgia is a glassy, pitch-perfect, mock-innocent surface through which something rotten might appear. (Ali Smith, Sunday Telegraph)

David Mitchell is dizzyingly, dazzlingly good . . . Black Swan Green is just gorgeous. (Eithne Farry, Daily Mail)

It is the best kind of contemporary fiction. (TLS).
