Mike Engleby says things that others dare not even think. A man devoid of scruple or self-pity, he rises without trace in Thatcher's England and scorches through the blandscape of New Labour. In the course of his brief, incandescent career, he and the reader encounter many famous people - actors, writers, politicians, household names - but by far the most memorable is Engleby himself. This work is a lament for a generation and the country it failed. It is also a meditation on the limits of science, the curse of human consciousness and on the lyrics of 1970s rock music. And beneath this highly disturbing surface lies an unfolding mystery of gripping narrative power. For when one of Mike's contemporaries unaccountably disappears the reader has to ask: is even the shameless Engleby capable of telling the whole truth?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Faulks is beyond doubt a master" * Financial Times *
"A novelist with muscle, with affinities to the great Europeans" * The Times *
"The best novelist of his generation" -- Allan Massie * Scotsman *
"If you've seen Anthony Minghella's 1991 film Truly Madly Deeply, you'll remember the lovely man, Michael Maloney, who breathes vim back into widow Juliet Stevenson's life. With a ragbag of note-perfect accents and infinite, understated charm, Maloney does the same for the audio version of Sebastian Faulks's new novel, Engleby...Engleby is not someone you want to spend much time with, unlike Maloney, whose subtle, faultless narration you'll want to listen to for hours." * FT Magazine *
"Sebastian Faulks's Engleby is read by Michael Maloney, who makes Mike Engleby chippy, offhand, disconnected and seriously weird by turn...a compelling, disconcerting listen as you search for the truth only Engleby knows." * Express *
