PostSubject: Sebastian Faulks’ A Week In December published in UK   Sat Sep 05, 2009 1:31 pm



This week marks the release of A Week in December, the newest novel from Sebastian Faulks, who wrote last year’s Ian Fleming centenary novel, Devil May Care.

This new (non-Bond) title is the first contemporary novel written by Faulks. A Week in December is published in hardback by Hutchinson on 3 September in the UK and is currently available to order from Amazon.co.uk. A release in the US will follow on 27 October.

For those interested in this latest novel from Faulks, The Guardian newspaper has a review up now.

The publication blurb follows:



A Week in December is Sebastian Faulks’ first wholly contemporary novel. Set in London, it’s a brilliant social satire, structured like a thriller, that takes place over the course of a single week at the end of 2007.

It brings together an intriguing cast of characters, each apparently in his or her own world but – as gradually becomes clear – ultimately intricately related. The anti-hero, John Veals, is a shadily successful and boundlessly ambitious Dickensian figure who is trading billions and other characters include a teenage Muslim fanatic, a Polish footballer, a female tube driver, a literary critic, a care worker and a chutney tycoon. As the story builds to its climax, Faulks pulls together powerful ideas about family, money, religion, and the way we live now.
