Promotional Information

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Skios, Michael Frayn's most recent novel, is a story of mislaid identity, misdirected passion and miscalculated consequences.

About the Author

Michael Frayn was born in London in 1933 and began his career as a journalist on the Guardian and the Observer. He is the author of ten novels, including the bestselling Headlong, which was a New York Times Editors' Choice selection and a Booker Prize finalist, and Spies, which received the Whitbread Fiction Award. He has also written a memoir, My Father's Fortune, and fifteen plays, among them Noises Off and Copenhagen, which won three Tony Awards. He lives just south of London with his wife, writer Claire Tomalin.

Reviews

"A witty Rube Goldberg construction of a novel... Think "Being There" set to the staccato pacing of "Noises Off", and hold on to your funny bones."--"Library Journal""" "Entertaining... A lacerating satire."--"Publishers Weekly"
