New Egypt is a village somewhere in the South of England. A village that nobody has ever left. Peach, the sadistic chief of police, makes sure of that. Then, one misty morning, a young couple secretly set their baby son Moses afloat on the river, in a basket made of rushes. Years later, Moses is living above a nightclub, mixing with drug-dealers, thieves and topless waitresses. He knows nothing about his past - but it is catching up with him nevertheless, and it threatens to put his life in danger. Terror, magic and farce all have a part to play as the worlds of Peach and Moses slowly converge.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the most haunting, resonant and clever parables about England you'll ever read * Guardian *
Imagine the quintessential English village filmed by Bunuel and written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez * New York Times Book Review *
Thomson chillingly fuses the real and the unreal with terrifying grace and infinite imagination. It's hard to believe this sophisticated, edgy novel is his first * Mail on Sunday *
When someone writes as well as Thomson does, it makes you wonder why other people bother * New Statesman *
