Small Crimes In An Age Of Abundance by Matthew Kneale
In his gripping new work, Matthew Kneale, author of the highly praised English Passengers, takes us around today's world, into the lives of ordinary people as they struggle to live, and to do the right thing, sometimes managing neither. A ploddingly respectable London lawyer who chances upon a stash of cocaine and realizes it offers the wealth and status he hungers for. A well-intentioned family on holiday in China who collide with the ruthless side of the country, and slowly become complicit in its violence. A salesman in Africa caught up in a riot that turns his life upside down. A self-doubting suicide bomber. Matthew Kneale takes us on a journey from England to Ethiopia, from Colombia to the Middle East, surprising us afresh as he crosses each frontier. As the book gains momentum, tense, funny, and always compassionate, it makes us see our world in a new way. Small Crimes in an Age of Abundance is a remarkable, powerful book, by of a master of the uncertainties of our time.
