John Lanchester

Capital is the fictional counterpart to Lanchester's non-fiction Whoops! which he wrote in 2010 as an angry primer to the financial crisis. This is a boisterous, fast-paced, panoramic novel that uses a single fictional south London street to tie together a broad cast of recognisable London characters. What makes it a wonderful read is the quality of the writing and the characterisation.
