We’re delighted to reveal the cover for the new novel from the multiple award-winning Christopher Priest. Feast your eyes on THE GRADUAL!
In this latest novel from one of the UK’s greatest writers we return to the Dream Archipelago, a string of islands that no one can map or explain. Alesandro Sussken is a composer, and we see his life as he grows up in a fascist state constantly at war with another equally faceless opponent. His brother is sent off to fight; his family is destroyed by grief. Occasionally Alesandro catches glimpses of islands in the far distance from the shore, and they feed into his music – music for which he is feted. But all knowledge of the other islands is forbidden by the junta, until he is unexpectedly sent on a cultural tour. And what he discovers on his journey will change his perceptions of his country, his music and the ways of the islands themselves.
The glorious design is by Julyan Bayes of www.us-now.com – do check them out!
The Gradual will be available in hardback and ebook on the 15th September 2016.
