It is the beginning of the century, and two teams of explorers are racing across a cold, windswept, deserted land to reach the furthest point from civilisation. It is, they find, 'an awfully long way'. Johns and his men take the western route, along a rocky scree, gossiping, bickering and grumbling as they go. Meanwhile, Tostig's men make their way along the dry riverbed in the east - they are fewer, with just five men and ten mules, and better organised than their rivals. But with Johns' team keeping apace in the distance, the race is on to reach the Agreed Furthest Point ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
'To write one unique book is a rare achievement. The ability to produce several is truly special' * Independent *
'A demented, deadpan comic wonder' * Thomas Pynchon *
'Writers that always spring to mind when reading Magnus Mills are Kafka and Beckett ... Mills asserts himself as [comedy]'s blackest, funniest and most astute practitioner' * Daily Telegraph *
'While the novel undoubtedly harbours darker elements, its most successful mode is deadpan humour ... he squelches mankind's confident madness, deftly and comically fuses the monotonous and the monstrous' * Sunday Times *
