Identity Crisis, Hardback Book

Description

`Ben Elton's 16th novel proves yet again what a genuinely talented comic novelist he is - it's expertly crafted, very clever and really funny' Harry Ritchie, Daily MailWhy are we all so hostile?

So quick to take offence? Truly we are living in the age of outrage. A series of apparently random murders draws amiable, old-school Detective Mick Matlock into a world of sex, politics, reality TV and a bewildering kaleidoscope of opposing identity groups.

Lost in a blizzard of hashtags, his already complex investigation is further impeded by the fact that he simply doesn't `get' a single thing about anything anymore. Meanwhile, each day another public figure confesses to having `misspoken' and prostrates themselves before the judgement of Twitter.

Begging for forgiveness, assuring the public "that is not who I am". But if nobody is who they are anymore - then who the f##k are we?Ben Elton returns with a blistering satire of the world as it fractures around us.

Get ready for a roller-coaster thriller, where nothing - and no one - is off limits. `Fast, funny and close to the bone' Mail on Sunday'A state-of-the-nation satire so sharp it's a wonder its pages don't leave paper cuts' I paper
