Description

‘His most brilliant novel yet’ Daily Telegraph

Mike Engleby has a secret…

This is the story of Mike Engleby, a working-class boy in the seventies who wins a place at an esteemed English university. A man devoid of scruple or self-pity, Engleby provides a disarmingly frank account of English education.

Yet beneath the disturbing surface of his observations lies an unfolding mystery of gripping power. When Jennifer, the fellow student he admires from a afar, disappears the reader has to ask: is Engleby capable of telling the whole truth?

‘Engleby himself is the most vivid personality Faulks has yet devised… engagingly lucid and disarmingly funny…’ Guardian
