THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. London, the week before Christmas, 2007. Seven wintry days to track the lives of seven characters: a hedge fund manager trying to bring off the biggest trade of his career; a professional footballer recently arrived from Poland; a young lawyer with little work and too much time to speculate; a student who has been led astray by Islamist theory; a hack book-reviewer; a schoolboy hooked on skunk and reality TV; and a Tube driver whose Circle Line train joins these and countless other lives together in a daily loop. With daring skill, the novel pieces together the complex patterns and crossings of modern urban life, and the group is forced, one by one, to confront the true nature of the world they inhabit. Sweeping, satirical, Dickensian in scope, A Week in December is a thrilling state of the nation novel from a master of literary fiction. 'A compelling tale of contemporary London' Guardian. 'Hilarious...The satire is so vicious that at times it's like reading a Tom Sharpe novel' Daily Telegraph. 'Perfectly constructed...a pleasure to read' Sunday Telegraph.
