In the year 2021, under the despotic rule of Xan Lyppiatt, the Warden of England, the old are despairing and the young cruel.

Theo Faren, a cousin of the Warden, lives a solitary life in this ominous atmosphere. That is, until a chance encounter with a young woman leads him into contact with a group of dissenters. 

Suddenly his life is changed irrevocably, as he faces agonising choices which could affect the future of mankind.

Children of Men was adapted into a hit film in 2006, directed by Alfonso Cuaron the film starred Clive Owen, Michael Caine and Julianne Moore.

A literary polymath, P.D. James is undoubtedly known primarily as a writer of crime fiction, having begun her career with her ever-popular seasoned detective Adam Dalgliesh in Cover her Face (a series she continued for a further 13 novels, finally finishing with The Private Patient).

Her novels were always much more than the sum of their parts with James frequently using fiction to challenge national institutions including the criminal justice system and the systemic failures of government. She developed a new audience when her dystopian novel The Children of Men was adapted for film and even turned her hand at a Regency classic, blending Jane Austen’s characters into the novel Death Comes to Pemberley.
