"A page-turner and a triumph...this book makes Beaumont's position as one of Britain's best comedy writers more permanent" (Daily Express)
"An involving drama with an unexpectedly dramatic climax...this has an ingeniously constructed plot and real emotional heft" (Daily Telegraph)
"An extraordinary novel...as the compelling stories unfold, we are party to every thought and dream. It's like unravelling mysteries behind the faces you see every day on your journey to work...intriguing and compelling." (Heat)
"A feelgood novel about circumstance and chance encounter" (Daily Mirror)
"Beaumont has spread his wings with Small World, ditching the out and out comedy for some sharp social analysis, but retaining his knack for a witty, punchy story" (Metro)
Can we ever be truly in control of our own destinies, or are our lives entirely shaped by random events and unknown people? Small World is an entirely contemporary and engrossing page-turner which explores universal themes of love, death, friendship, marriage, madness, and redemption, unifying them all through this central question.See all Product Description
