This Is 64

by Joseph Connolly

This Is 64 Synopsis

THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE BOLLINGER SHORTLISTED AUTHOR OF ENGLAND'S LANE. 'There's a lot of brilliantly observed detail... it's very funny and very sharp' Michael Palin George is a fashion mad Beatles fan, selfish and cruel. Why his girlfriend Dorothy loves him is a mystery to her and to his best friend Sammy. When George callously chucks her he cannot anticipate that his life, post 1964, will never be the same. And forty-four years later, when George is sixty-four, rich and successful, his past will catch up with him and his family. 'Connolly unfolds a rich and compelling drama of life that is anything but everyday' Daily Mail 'It is Connolly's skill to get the reader to laugh at what should make you cry or at least wince' Times Literary Supplement

This Is 64 Press Reviews

Connolly remorselessly points up social pretensions with the eye of Dostoevsky . . . this satire on human behaviour is timeless. * Independent * He remains essentially a comic novelist, but one whose work has its dark, even sinister side . . . There is no other novelist today who writes quite like Connolly. * Scotsman * Connolly creates a sense of intimacy and collusion with his reader that is rare in contemporary fiction. * Financial Times * A writer of considerable power and subtlety. * Guardian * A lot of brilliantly observed detail . . . very funny and very sharp. -- Michael Palin
