Arthur & George, Paperback / softback Book

Arthur & George Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Now a major TV series starring Martin Clunes, Arsher Ali and Art MalikFrom the winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011, an extraordinary true-life tale about a long-forgotten mystery... Arthur and George grow up worlds apart in late nineteenth-century Britain: Arthur in shabby-genteel Edinburgh, George in the vicarage of a small Staffordshire village.

Arthur is to become one of the most famous men of his age, while George remains in hard-working obscurity.

But as the new century begins, they are brought together by a sequence of events that made sensational headlines at the time as The Great Wyrley Outrages.

This is a novel about low crime and high spirituality, guilt and innocence, identity, nationality and race.

Most of all it is a profound and moving meditation on the fateful differences between what we believe, what we know and what we can prove.
