An English geologist working on a Mediterranean island becomes embroiled in a nightmare web of deceit, corruption, lust and tragedy in Tim Parks' mesmeric story of a man whose life will be shattered like the fatal fragment of stone that obsesses him.

About the Author:

Tim Parks is the author of seven novels, including Tongues of Flame (winner of the Somerset Maugham and Betty Trask Awards), Loving Roger (winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize) and most recently Goodness. He has just completed a new novel, Mimi's Ghost. He has lived in Italy since 1981 and is married to an Italian. Italian Neighbours, his non-fiction account of suburban life in Italy, has been variously described as 'tough, funny and sceptical', a rich treat from start to finish' and 'a travel book with a rare sense of purpose'.

Apart from his own writing, Tim Parks is the translator of such authors as Alberto Moravia, Italo Calvino, Antonio Tabucchi and Roberto Calasso.
