Granville Jones is at the end of his life – ‘one of the greats of old-time Fleet Street’, once a famous world-roving correspondent, now self-exiled on an island Emirate in the Gulf, a forgotten man, eclipsed by rising stars of television journalism.
“A near-forgotten masterpiece… one of the few books I’ve ever read that I finished in one sitting and then immediately had to read again”
— John Gray – New Statesman (Book of the Year)
“One of the most haunting novels I have read for years.”
— Jackie Wullschlager – Residents Abroad
“Tom Stacey’s second novel is uncommonly confident about love and death. Published 16 years after his first, its maturing has been worth waiting for: the orderly writing, robust intelligence and honesty are steadily enlivening.”
— The Times
