Review:

Praise for THE NEW REPUBLIC:

‘It takes guts to write a satire about terrorism – and Lionel Shriver has guts. Shriver is an incisive social satirist with a clear grip on the ironies of our contemporary age’ LA TIMES

‘Shriver has the kind of cojones few English-language novelists possess, male or female’ GLOBE & MAIL ‘The New Republic stands at the confluence of a number of fine comic traditions . . . we can only be thankful that Shriver got round to dusting down this comic tour de force for the outing it richly deserves’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘Written with intelligence, wit and pizzazz’ DAILY MAIL

‘She is one of the most magnetically compelling writers working today. Witty, caustic and worldly’ WALL STREET JOURNAL

From the Back Cover:

Disgruntled New York corporate lawyer Edgar Kellogg is more than ready to leave his lucrative career for the excitement and uncertainty of journalism. When he's offered the post of foreign correspondent in a Portuguese backwater that has sprouted a homegrown terrorist movement, Edgar recognizes Barrington Saddler, the disappeared reporter Edgar's been sent to replace, as exactly the outsize character he longs to emulate.

Yet all is not as it appears. Os Soldados Ousados de Barba--"The Daring Soldiers of Barba"--have been blowing up the rest of the world for years in order to win independence for a province so dismal and backward that you couldn't give the rat hole away. So why, with Barrington vanished, do terrorist incidents claimed by the "SOB" suddenly dry up?

The New Republic addresses weighty issues such as terrorism withthe deft, tongue-in-cheek touch that is vintage Shriver. It also presses the more intimate question: What makes particular people so magnetic, while the rest of us inspire a shrug? What's their secret? And in the end, who has the better life--the admired, or the admirer?
