9780099445043: Judge Savage

Promoted young to the position of Crown Court Judge - because of his ability, but perhaps also for certain questions of political convenience - it's time for Daniel Savage to settle down. Perhaps his marriage is happy enough after all. Teenage children require a father's attention. His career demands the most responsible behaviour. Day by day Judge Savage presides over those whose double lives have been exposed. He must be above suspicion.

But why does his daughter refuse to move to their spacious new house? Why does a young Korean woman keep phoning him to beg for help? As the most tangled lives are ironed out in court, Daniel Savage's own existence descends into a mess of violence and confusion. English society has fragmented into an incomprehensible public gallery where every face conceals a different culture. And those with whom we have the greatest intimacy are suddenly the most frighteningly mysterious.

Review:

"A book for our times... A moving, important novel" ( Irish Independent)

"The world that Parks evokes is densely textured, a patchwork or memories, desires and declarations that brilliantly captures the complexity of consciousness" ( Sunday Times)

"A dashing mixture of thriller, social comedy and dysfunctional family saga... A virtuoso piece, a tour de force, highly enjoyable" ( Spectator)

"A grimly affecting novel of adultery and family disintegration... A brilliant, even contentious, novel of bleak humour and undeniable power" ( Evening Standard)

"Parks is a master of emotional complexity" ( Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

'Judge Savage is a work of tremendous learning and subtlety' - Observer
