Body Tourists Synopsis

'Her observation of our species is tender, precise, illuminating' Hilary Mantel THE NEW NOVEL BY THE BOOKER LONGLISTED AND ARTHUR C CLARKE AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE TESTAMENT OF JESSIE LAMB ADAPTED FROM THE HIT BBC RADIO 4 PLAY 'An ambitious and important writer' New York Times 'Unputdownable and often thought-provoking' Sunday Times 'Grimly plausible' Guardian In this version of London, there is a small, private clinic. Behind its layers of security, procedures are taking place on poor, robust teenagers from northern Estates in exchange for thousands of pounds - procedures that will bring the wealthy dead back to life in these young supple bodies for fourteen days. It's an opportunity for wrongs to be righted, for fathers to meet grandsons, for scientists to see their work completed. Old wine in new bottles. But at what cost? MORE PRAISE FOR JANE ROGERS AND BODY TOURISTS: 'Gripping' Mail on Sunday 'Very much a novel about human nature . . . an insightful examination of the things people truly value' SciFi Now 'A wonderfully versatile novelist' Penelope Lively 'Rogers' prose flows elegantly and with effortless power' Observer 'A compulsive and compelling slice of fiction' Sunday Express
