The Death of Eli Gold

 
9780007367658: The Death of Eli Gold

The new novel from David Baddiel, comedian, columnist and author of the critically-praised The Secret Purposes.

As Eli Gold, a famous old writer lies dying in a hospital in New York, his family gather around his bed. His first wife Violet is too old to travel from London but Harvey, their son, who has never emerged from the shadow of his overpowering father, makes the journey. And there is Colette, a six-year old daughter from a second marriage, struggling to make sense of the fact her father is about to leave her.

The Death of Eli Gold is a mesmerising family drama which confounds the expectations anyone might have that David Baddiel as a TV comedian. It is the work of a very fine novelist, here writing at the peak of his powers.

Review:

‘The Death of Eli Gold is, like it's hero, an impressive and energetic piece of work. Unlike Eli, however, it is tender, rather lovely…And, of course, richly comic. Those who care to read between the one-liners will hear a more serious voice emerge: a maturing writer who may, with his next novel, be ready to throw off his English reserve and dare to attempt a redefinition of the Great Novel himself. Let's hope that he is, because this, his grown-up, fluent and bitingly bright fourth book, is shockingly good.’ Melissa Katsoulis, The Times

‘Remarkable…This is by far his most entertaining and satisfying novel’ Mark Sellek, Independent on Sunday

‘An English as much as an American tale, a comedy as much as an elegy…Heartbreaking’ Boyd Tonkin, Independent

‘The Death of Eli Gold is brilliant, wise, compassionate, satirical, mature, and better than anything Martin Amis has done in decades…This richly textured novel is not to be missed’ Roger Lewis, Sunday Express

About the Author:
