'A book dealing with modern problems and rightly longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. King is a writer's writer, his voice utterly convincing' Beryl Bainbridge, Books of the Year, Daily Telegraph

Francis King's provocative and adventurous novel looks at the havoc wrought when a young Kosovan – an illegal immigrant – finds himself in London. Mehmet leads a double life befriending and lodging with an elderly woman who suffers from MS, while at the same time having an affair with a female doctor and throwing himself onto the London gay scene. Disaster looms when he begins a relationship with a gay protector – and is arrested because of his illegal status.
