The debut novel from Joseph O'Neill, author of the Man Booker Prize longlisted and Richard & Judy pick, `Netherland'.
James Jones is slipping steadily through life. He has a steady job as a junior partner at a solicitor's firm, a steady girlfriend and a steady mortgage. Nothing much is happening in Jones's life but he really doesn't mind - this is exactly the way he likes it.
Michael Donovan, meanwhile, is a star - a world-class international lawyer and advocate - he's everything Jones wanted to be and isn't. Jones was once Donovan's pupil and, for a while, it looked like he too would make his name - but he left that high-powered world behind a long time ago, or so he thought.
One day Jones reads in the paper that Donovan has collapsed in court - then, out of the blue, Donovan contacts him; he has a job he needs Jones to work on
Joseph O'Neill's debut is wonderfully clever and comic novel - about ambitions and aspirations and the realities that they inevitably collide with.
