From the author of the award-winning The People's Act of Love

It's 2001 and Adam Kellas is in Afghanistan, reporting the US attacks on the Taliban for his London-based paper. When he's not filing the kind of report he knows his editor doesn't want, he is writing a novel-a sell-out novel he hope will make his fortune. But it's the elusive US journalist Astrid Walsh who captures his attention, and remains in his thoughts long after he returns to London.

Fourteen months later, with a dubious publishing deal, a gashed, bleeding arm and a twenty-nine-word email from Astrid, he's on the first flight to New York, to her. With all the explosive drama of The People's Act of Love, James Meek's new novel spans continents and cultures. It is a timeless tale of folly and the pursuit of love, set against the incendiary politics of our time.

James Meek was born in London in 1962. He now lives in London where he writes for the Guardian, the London Review of Books and Granta. Meek's acclaimed novel, The People's Act of Love, won the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize in 2006.

'Meek, an accomplished journalist and novelist, manages to create truly believable characters in an unbelievably real world...Seemingly familiar characters and settings become utterly original with Meek's tremendous attention to detail...If you haven't read James Meek, this is a good place to start.'
