Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One night a boy who comes to be called Thomas Parry is taken from his family, caught up in a comprehensive unraveling of what had been a united kingdom. Reacting to their country’s inexorable decline into consumerism, turpitude, racism, and violence, the powers that be establish four independent republics based on the perceived nature of the citizens assigned to each. These new partitions are reinforced with concrete barricades and razor wire.

Renamed, relocated, and granted favored status, Thomas enjoys one success after another until, working as a devoted civil servant, he suddenly falls out of the system entirely.

Synopsis:

Reacting to a inexorable decline into consumerism, turpitude, violence, and racism, a government redistributes its citizens into four separate regions according to personality type, partitioning the country with concrete barricades and razor wire, until a boy, taken from his family and raised to become the perfect civil servant, embarks on a mission that will change his life forever. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

The author of six previous novels--most recently, The Book of Revelation--Rupert Thomson was born in England and now lives with his wife and their daughter in Barcelona.
