A compelling, gripping novel from the No.1 bestselling author of Five Days, The Moment and The Pursuit of Happiness.
Douglas Kennedy's previous novels include the critically acclaimed bestsellers The Big Picture, The Pursuit of Happiness, A Special Relationship and The Moment. He is also the author of three highly-praised travel books. The Big Picture was filmed with Romain Duris and Catherine Deneuve; The Woman in the Fifth with Ethan Hawke and Kristen Scott Thomas. His work has been translated into twenty-two languages. In 2007 he was awarded the French decoration of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and in 2009 the inaugural Grand Prix de Figaro. Born in Manhattan in 1955, he has two children and currently divides his time between London, Paris, Berlin, Maine and New York.
"State of the Union has the feel of a handgun primed for Russian roulette. The climax, when past and future collide, is explosive" * The Times * "The story is sit-up-until-3am readable, the wide-ranging cast of highly individual characters is beautifully handled" * Sunday Times * "Kennedy is a complete genius when it comes to understanding the minds of stylish but troubled women. What's more, he does so enthrallingly and movingly" * Daily Mirror * "Extremely clever and consistently engaging" * Independent on Sunday * "A mesmerising page-turner" * Sunday Express *
