9780099526261: The Kilburn Social Club

The Kilburn Social Club is a Premiership team of opera singers, academics and South African freedom fighters. It’s a dream; a club where no one is more equal than anyone else. Robert Hudson has written a story of love, idealism and identity in something like modern, multicultural Britain.

About the Author:

Robert Hudson is the author of the novel, The Dazzle. With Marie Phillips, he writes the BBC Radio 4 series, Warhorses of Letters. He lives in London.

Review:

"A terrific book, for all sorts of reasons: how lightly the comedy and the conceits are worn; the thumping readability of it; the laughs; the counter-factual world in which it's set. Oh, and also because of the talking football, a sort of Motson-meets-Kierkegaard character. This is a fizzy, funny, fantastical first novel" -- Robert MacFarlane "Reminiscent in places of Iain Bank's The Crow Road and Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up!, Hudson's intricately plotted comedy works best at its broadest, satirising soccer's greed" -- Adrian Turpin Financial Times "Funny and richly inventive, and you don't have to like the beautiful game to enjoy the journey" -- Kate Saunders The Times "There is an echo of Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up! - a similarly broad satirical novel with larger-than-life characters" -- Tim Souster Times Literary Supplement "Enormously enjoyable" -- Patrick Neate Guardian
