Publisher's Summary

Following his expulsion from school, 17-year-old dreamer Ellis Dau is sent to work with his father. His father is editor of The Chronicle, the last bastion of free speech in their strange, strange land. And it is under threat: from heavy-handed policemen, mysterious revolutionaries, and the resident Russian billionaire. As Ellis navigates his collapsing, blacked-out city - and his feelings for the oligarch's beautiful daughter - he realises that some things are worth fighting for. But can he save his family and the newspaper fuelled only by youth, grain spirit and unrequited love?

Narration by Daniel Weyman.

Critic Reviews

''A tour de force. A page-dazzler. A dark dream that may come true.'' (Piers Plowright)
''I loved this rollercoaster of a ride into a corrupt, fictitious country that feels only too hideously real. It's pretty funny too, and has a big heart. Highly recommended.'' (Deborah Moggach, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)
''Take Sacha Baron Cohen, add a twist of Kafka and lace it with Groucho Marx. You're entering the surreal and blackly funny world of Simon Wroe. A brilliant novel by a very special writer.'' (Miranda Seymour)
