THE PRIZE-WINNING SATIRICAL BESTSELLER - A "HOUSE OF CARDS" FOR THE EU

MORE THAN 500,000 COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE

This is the tale of a continent, a city and its inhabitants as they navigate their way through the confusing tangle of 21st-century life. The Capital is a brilliantly entertaining satire, a crime story, a comedy of manners . . . and a wild pig chase.

"First-class satire" Guardian"

"A deliciously vicious and timely satire" Financial Times

"Mischievous yet profound" Economist

"Thoroughly entertaining" Spectator

"A romp" Politico

*************************************
Brussels. A hive of tragic heroes, manipulative losers, involuntary accomplices. No wonder the European Commission is keen to improve its image.

The fiftieth anniversary of the European Commission approaches, and the Directorate-General for Culture is tasked with organising an appropriate celebration. When Fenia Xenopoulou's assistant comes up with a plan to put Auschwitz at the very centre of the jubilee, she is delighted. But she has neglected to take the other E.U. institutions into account.

Meanwhile the city is on the lookout for a runaway pig. And what about the farmers who take to the streets to protest against restrictions blocking the export of pigs to China?
