Kavanagh begins his life patrolling the Wall. If he’s lucky, if nothing goes wrong, he only has two years of this: 729 more nights. The Wall is a thrilling and hypnotic novel: a story of mystery, love, war and a voyage. It’s about a broken world you will recognise as your own – and about what might be found when all is lost. John Lanchester is an award-winning author of literary fiction and the bestselling author of Capital. He is a contributing editor to the London Review of Books and a regular contributor to the New Yorker. His books have been longlisted for the Booker Prize and been translated into twenty-five languages.
