Set in a Macedonian refugee camp during the 1999 Kosovo crisis, The Internationals spans seventy-eight tense days from the commencement of NATO air strikes on Yugoslavia to the withdrawal of Serb forces from Northern Kosovo. As the spotlight of the world's media is turned on a small, landlocked country, an extraordinary cast of aid workers and diplomats finds itself becoming inextricably involved with refugees, advertising executives and an Albanian mayor in ways none of them expected.

The weeks pass, temperatures soar and, gradually, the Internationals jettison more and more of the certainties they came with, until the only certainty they're left with is that no form of contraception exists against corruption - least of all purity of motive.

Review:

"Intriguing and unfailingly entertaining" (Time Out)

"The Internationals is a compelling work of fiction, armed with an intelligence that sets its own distractions against the diet of 'abridged reality' on which our taste for euphemistic spin, in any language or time of conflict, continues so worryingly to depend" (Spectator)

"Rare perception and finesse... Finding a tone that lets cynicism co-exist with compassion is no mean peace-keeping feat. The Internationals achieves it with admirable poise" (Independent)

Book Description:

'May is a compassionate writer and her ability to capture the contradictions of humanity under duress make this a highly readable and engaging novel' - Big Issue
