Product description


"Astonishing. A love story that owes everything to the great collision of Osama bin Laden and Bush Jr's foreign policy. An intensely flavoured excavation of our times . . . wholly original." (The Times)

"A brilliantly constructed contemporary novel, illuminated with wit and intelligence on almost every page." (Daily Mail)

"Damnably hard to put down, with the momentum and trajectory of a well-aimed rocket. A book to keep one reading through the small hours. Terrific." (Jonathan Raban London Review of Books)

"A truthful and powerful novel about love, friendship and the struggle to be true in a world that has lost its grip on certainties." (New Statesman)

"Compelling and admirable . . . Kellas is one of the more intriguing anti-heroes of recent fiction." (Matt Thorne Sunday Telegraph)

"Genuinely affecting." (Sunday Times)

"Always readable, the book has pace and assurance. A highly intelligent novel and edgily contemporary." (Independent)

"Conscientious and courageous." (Guardian)

"We Are Now Beginning our Descent is really a love story, a fine successor to The People's Act of Love." (Spectator)

"Meek has created not just an entertaining novel, but a valuable comment on some of the most contentious issues of our time." (Irish Times)
