A scalpel sharp political satire from the Orange Prize winning writer of We Need to Talk about Kevin.

`A superbly witty political satire' THE TIMES

Edgar Kellogg has always yearned to be popular. Leaving his lucrative career as a lawyer for the sexier world of journalism, he's thrilled to be offered the post of foreign correspondent in a Portuguese backwater with a home-grown terrorist movement. Barrington Saddler, the disappeared larger-than-life reporter he's been sent to replace, is exactly the outsize character Edgar longs to emulate.

`The Daring Soldiers of Barba' have been blowing up the rest of the world for years in order to win independence for Barba, a province so dismal, backward and windblown that you couldn't give the rat hole away. So why, with Barrington vanished, do the terrorist incidents suddenly dry up?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for THE NEW REPUBLIC:

`It takes guts to write a satire about terrorism - and Lionel Shriver has guts. Shriver is an incisive social satirist with a clear grip on the ironies of our contemporary age' LA TIMES

`Shriver has the kind of cojones few English-language novelists possess, male or female' GLOBE & MAIL `The New Republic stands at the confluence of a number of fine comic traditions . . . we can only be thankful that Shriver got round to dusting down this comic tour de force for the outing it richly deserves' SUNDAY TIMES

`Written with intelligence, wit and pizzazz' DAILY MAIL

`She is one of the most magnetically compelling writers working today. Witty, caustic and worldly' WALL STREET JOURNAL
