Engleby is a gripping, demotic, heart-wrenching novel, laced with dark humour.
Sebastian Faulks was born in April 1953. Before becoming a full-time writer in 1991, he worked as a journalist. Sebastian Faulks's books include A Possible Life, Human Traces, On Green Dolphin Street, Engleby, Birdsong, A Week in December and Where My Heart Used to Beat.
"Like Human Traces, Engleby is distinguished by a remarkable intellectual energy: a narrative verve, technical mastery of the possibilities of the novel form and vivid sense of the tragic contingency of human life... The combination of serious purpose and playful execution is intensely exhilarating" -- Jane Shilling * Sunday Telegraph * "Beautifully done... A portrait of one mind out of joint with its times, and eventually defeated by them... Witty, poignant, Engleby is as cold as a Fenland wind, as clever as a Cambridge don" * The Times * "His most brilliant novel yet" * Daily Telegraph * "Brilliant" * Observer * "Engleby himself is the most vivid personality Faulks has yet devised... engagingly lucid and disarmingly funny... This novel is a significant departure for Faulks, and the new terrain suits him well" * Guardian *
