Novelist and journalist John Lanchester, widely famed for his novels The Debt to Pleasure and Capital, possess a rare ability to speak to speak to our society’s preoccupations with uncanny exactness; The Wall is a testament to this skill. This hypnotic new novel is about why the young are right to hate the old. It’s about a broken world you will recognise as your own—and about what might be found when all is lost.
John Lanchester is an author at the height of his powers and one of the most eloquent of the UK’s contemporary writers whose insightful pieces for the LRB and the New Yorker show him to be the foremost interpreter of the way we live now.
