9780099466185: The High Flyer

Thomas Wavery is the new Consul General at Abyla on the tip of North Africa. A career diplomat, Wavery was once a high flyer, but an affair with a younger woman has dashed his dreams of ambassadorship. He arrives in Abyla with his wife suing for divorce, his passport stolen by a Gibraltarian ape and precious little enthusiasm for the task ahead. His one hope of redemption is a visit from his new love.

Review:

"He tells a story like an angel... Wonderful" ( Observer)

"A deeply satisfying book. I feel quite exceptionally inclined to read it all over again" (Rosemary Stoyle Literary Review)

"Shakespeare has completed a richly detailed, remarkably complete imaginary world" ( The Times)

"His lyricism is all his own and he raises his lovers to a plateau of passion where Greene never ventured" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Wavery's story has a lyric simplicity and an emotional subtlety that are moving, involving and beautifully observed" ( Independent)

From the Publisher:

'Shakespeare must be praised for his energy, his always lucid presentation' IAN MORRISON, Independent on Sunday
