The New Republic, Paperback Book

Description

A scalpel sharp political satire from the Orange Prize winning writer of We Need to Talk about Kevin. `A superbly witty political satire' THE TIMES Edgar Kellogg has always yearned to be popular.

Leaving his lucrative career as a lawyer for the sexier world of journalism, he's thrilled to be offered the post of foreign correspondent in a Portuguese backwater with a home-grown terrorist movement.

Barrington Saddler, the disappeared larger-than-life reporter he's been sent to replace, is exactly the outsize character Edgar longs to emulate. `The Daring Soldiers of Barba' have been blowing up the rest of the world for years in order to win independence for Barba, a province so dismal, backward and windblown that you couldn't give the rat hole away.

So why, with Barrington vanished, do the terrorist incidents suddenly dry up?
