About this book
Paperback edition of Lanchester's epic novel set in London, following a range of different characters who live on or are connected to one street. The hardback reached number 2 in the chart, and there will be a huge marketing and PR campaign to support this paperback. There will also be an extensive author tour including headline events at all the major literary festivals. 'Brimming with perception, humane empathy and relish... a capital achievement.' "Sunday Times"
The residents of Pepys Road, London - a banker and his shopaholic wife, an old woman dying of a brain tumour, a family of Pakistani shop owners, the young football star from Senegal and his minder - all receive an anonymous postcard one day with a simple message: We Want What You Have. Who is behind it? What do they want?
