THE ARRIVAL has become one of the most critically acclaimed books of recent years, a wordless masterpiece that describes a world beyond any familiar time or place.
Sited as No 35 in The Times 100 Best Books of all time. It has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.
"An imaginative triumph. Every home should have one." - The Times
