About this book
Major new novel from the 1998 Nobel Laureate which takes a darkly comic but sinister look at the consequences of voter apathy. The situation he creates is a politician's worst nightmare: disillusionment not with one party, but with all, thereby rendering the entire democratic system completely useless. 'This is political satire delivered with rare intellectual gravitas' "Mail On Sunday"
Despite the heavy rain, the presiding officer at Polling Station 14 finds it odd that by midday on National Election day, only a handful of voters have turned out. This title explores how simply this could be achieved and how devastating the results might be.
