Author of the Booker-longlisted novel Second Place

'Cements her reputation as one of the most fierce and elegant chroniclers of how we live now.' Stephanie Merritt, Observer

Lawrence, Olivia Manning and Natalia Ginzburg, it is essential reading for our age: fearless, unrepentantly erudite, both startling and rewarding to behold.
