  1. Sebastian Faulks' A Week in December set for March release in US

    A Week in December, the latest novel from Devil May Care author Sebastian Faulks, is due to be released in the US this upcoming March.

    This new book is the first contemporary novel written by Faulks. Besides his 2008 Ian Fleming centenary James Bond adventure, some of his other works include Birdsong, Human Traces and Engelby.

    First released in the UK in September of last year, the US release date is currently scheduled for 9 March.

    The official publication blurb follows:

    Sebastian Faulks’ A Week in December

    A Week in December is Sebastian Faulks’ first wholly contemporary novel. Set in London, it’s a brilliant social satire, structured like a thriller, that takes place over the course of a single week at the end of 2007.

    It brings together an intriguing cast of characters, each apparently in his or her own world but – as gradually becomes clear – ultimately intricately related. The anti-hero, John Veals, is a shadily successful and boundlessly ambitious Dickensian figure who is trading billions and other characters include a teenage Muslim fanatic, a Polish footballer, a female tube driver, a literary critic, a care worker and a chutney tycoon. As the story builds to its climax, Faulks pulls together powerful ideas about family, money, religion, and the way we live now.

    To be published by Doubleday, the US edition of A Week in December will retail for $27.95 and can currently be pre-ordered online:
