The Singapore Grip : NOW A MAJOR ITV DRAMA, Paperback / softback Book

The Singapore Grip : NOW A MAJOR ITV DRAMA Paperback / softback

Part of the W&N Essentials series

Paperback / softback

Description

A classic novel by a Booker Prize-winning author. Soon to be adapted for an ITV television series by the Oscar-winning playwright behind Atonement and Dangerous Liaisons, Christopher Hampton.

Singapore just before the Japanese invasion in the Second World War: the Blackett family's prosperous world of tennis parties, cocktails and deferential servants seems unchanging.

But it is poised on the edge of the abyss: This is the eve of the Fall of Singapore and, as we know, of much else besides. Not only the Blacketts, their friends and enemies, but many individuals are caught up in the events.

Singapore at this historical watershed has never been so faithfully and passionately recreated.
