The residents of Pepys Road, London - a banker and his shopaholic wife, an elderly woman dying of a brain tumour, the Pakistani family who run the local shop, the young football star from Senegal and his minder - all receive anonymous postcards with a simple message: We Want What You Have. Who is behind it? What do they want? As the mystery of the postcards deepens, the world around Pepys Road is turned upside down by the financial crash and all of its residents' lives change beyond recognition over the course of the next year. From the bestselling author of Whoops! and How to Speak Money comes a post-financial crisis, state-of-the-nation novel told with compassion, humour and unflinching truth.

“Light reading”

Interesting premise and an easy read with some genuinely funny bits. However I felt the story line and characters were overly simple and stereotyped, which was a bit disappointing. Hence, the 3 star rating.

“WBRG April 2013: Insightful and Enthralling”

There is no getting around the fact that John Lanchester's novel 'Capital' is a brick of a book. At almost 600 pages it seems amazing that a reader can be enthralled for that long while just hearing... More
