Description
One of the publishing sensations of recent years, garnering critical acclaim and rights sales in five countries, The Book of Kings established James Thackara as a novelist of extraordinary range and vision. This, his first novel, tells the story of J.

Glorious descriptions of nature's might and mystery stand in contrast to man's pathetic folly' - Booklist'
