Justin Cartwright introduces the reader to Anthony Northleach, and one intense, comic and horrifying day in his life.

Set in London against the background of Nelson Mandela’s release, this novel follows what begins as an ordinary day in the life of Anthony Northleach. He ruminates on his marriage, his work, rugby and politics, until his day takes on the aspect first of a waking dream then of a true nightmare.
