Synopsis

*LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019*



'Masterly . . . A signal achievement . . . Remarkable.' Guardian



'A 1984 for our times.' Daily Express



Kavanagh begins his time patrolling the Wall.



If he's lucky, if nothing goes wrong, he only has to do two years of this. 729 more nights.



The best thing that can happen is that he survives and gets off the Wall and will never have to spend another day of his life anywhere near it.



But what if something did happen - if the Others came, if he had to fight for his life?



Thrilling and heartbreaking, The Wall is about a troubled world you will recognise as your own - and about what might be found when all is lost.



The Wall was longlisted for the Booker Prize in July 2019.

Staff Choice

Like a kind of 1984 for Brexit and climate change, The Wall takes a present we didn't see coming and extrapolates it to a future we might. Set a generation ahead in a proud, isolationist Britain whose risen shores are defended from refugees by a colossal concrete wall, this is dramatic and gripping plotting, with the pace and sense of mystery to keep each page turning.
