More About the Author

Nigel Farndale is the author of The Blasphemer, which was shortlisted for the 2010 Costa Novel Award. His previous books include Haw-Haw: The Tragedy of William and Margaret Joyce, which was shortlisted for the 2005 Whitbread Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. He was born and raised in the Yorkshire Dales, read philosophy as a postgraduate at Durham University and worked as a farmer for a few years before moving to London to become a journalist. He now lives on the Hampshire-Sussex border with his wife and their three children. His new novel, The Road Between Us, is dedicated to them.

Product Description

Review

‘A novel rooted in acute observation.’ -- Harry Mount, The Sunday Telegraph

‘A sparklingly entertaining first novel.’ -- Michael Hall, Country Life

‘Compelling‘ -- Matthew Norman, The Guardian

‘In this deftly plotted novel Farndale captures the edgy point scoring and the brain sharpening cynicism of the media world.’ -- Robin Oakley, BBC Political Editor, writing in The Daily Telegraph

‘The text is peppered with sardonic sideswipes. Farndale has a knack for letting dialogue tell a story, sharply and convincingly... -- James Harkin, New Statesman

Format: Paperback
A cleverly conceieved political thriller about power, the media and politics. Funny, plausible, a good read to the end. Much more than a holiday read.

Format: Paperback
A great roister doister read, unflagging pace and a thoroughly enjoyable plot. I found the language a bit annoying after a few chapters but the story was compelling and I soon forgot my reservations. A good long-journey book, worth a tenner.

Format: Paperback
I was not too sure at first about this book, Nigel Farndale writes for The Sunday Telegraph, and I don't always like what I read. How wrong could I be about the book? It is funny, interesting, and well crafted. It is an ideal summer read with a great ending. I was pleasantly suprised.
