Product description

Review

Gripping...Full of tense action and sudden reversals...Few readers will stop until they reach its final page.--Alec Nevala-Lee

Thrilling...A topical and deftly satirical novel.--Anna Mundow

A chilling reminder of the ease with which myopia can turn to dystopia.--Michael Magras

Chillingly real.--Boris Kachka

As in all good dystopian fiction, Lanchester shows us a world that could become a reality...[He] maintains measured, elegant prose-creating an assuredly human dystopian novel.--Lucas Wittmann

Bold and confident fiction that highlights the current American and British issues of Trumpism and Brexit.

The Wall is something new: almost an allegory, almost a dystopian-future warning, partly an elegant study of the nature of storytelling itself. I was hugely impressed by it.--Philip Pullman

Product Description

LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019

'Masterly . . . A signal achievement . . . Remarkable.' Guardian

'A 1984 for our times.' Daily Express

Kavanagh begins his time patrolling the Wall.

If he's lucky, if nothing goes wrong, he only has to do two years of this. 729 more nights.

The best thing that can happen is that he survives and gets off the Wall and will never have to spend another day of his life anywhere near it.

But what if something did happen - if the Others came, if he had to fight for his life?

Thrilling and heartbreaking, The Wall is about a troubled world you will recognise as your own - and about what might be found when all is lost.
