Ian McEwan’s new political satire


When truth is stranger than fiction, there’s always satire to keep us amused.  In McEwan’s new novella, The Cockroach, Jim Sams wakes to find that he has become the most powerful man in Britain and nothing must get in his way to deliver the will of the people.

“As the nation tears itself apart…” McEwan says ” … there is only one answer: write”

This bitingly funny political satire has been published in record time – the manuscript was finished only a month ago.  It’s completely contemporary with our times and in the shop from today.  Drop by or call to reserve a copy.
