Product description

Review

Page-turning and deeply moving. A masterpiece. (Amanda Foreman)

All the pace and drama you could wish for (Guardian)

Lucid and humane (Charles Moore, Daily Telegraph)

A dramatic story which involves the reader from the first page. The insight into the politics of overseas aid is as convincing and courageous as the author's depiction of comprehensive education in The Illumination of Merton Browne. (Piers Paul Reed)

'Shaw's pacing, happily, is almost faultless. With its emphasis on dialogue, its ensemble cast, its moral dilemmas and its well-maintained tension his book has the feel already of a television miniseries . . . it is crammed with plot and constant drama.' (Literary Review)

Praise for The Illumination of Merton Browne:



'As soon as you read the first page you're gripped by the voice...a state of the nation novel...a very tough, unflinching look at what life is like today...but there's also an incredible amount of hope...scary, compelling, original...brilliant'

(Boyd Hilton, Simon Mayo Show, Radio 5)

Merton has a distinctive voice - edgy, sharp, and avid for adventure, whether it's drugs or sex. His inner struggle to abandon his self-destructive path and become responsible for his own life makes for a gripping read. (Daily Mail)

An explosive, disturbingly realistic story (Guardian)

Visceral, tough and original (Tim Lott)

'A vivid, sometimes shocking novel, which combines a fast-moving narrative with an incisive, satirical critique of comprehensive education' (Piers Paul Read, Spectator , Books of the Year)

Book Description

Set in a fictitious African country, this is a powerful exploration of corruption, integrity, and the gulf between ideals and reality, by a 21st-Century Graham Greene.
