Paradise City

Elizabeth Day

As a state-of-the-city novel, it’s richer than John Lanchester’s Capital and less pleased with itself than Ian McEwan’s Saturday. EVENING STANDARD Howard Pink is a wildly successful businessman still struggling to cope years after his nineteen-year-old daughter disappeared…Beatrice Kizza fled from persecution in Uganda, where homosexuality is illegal, and now works as a maid at a hotel…Esme Reade, an ambitious staff reporter on a Sunday tabloid, is in pursuit of an elusive scoop…Carol Hetherington, recently widowed, is living the quiet life with her cat and THE JEREMY KYLE SHOW for company. Four strangers, each inhabitants of London, where the gulf between those who have too much and those who will never have enough is impossibly vast. But when the glass that separates Howard’s and Beatrice’s worlds is shattered by an inexcusable act, they discover that the capital connects them in ways they could never have imagined.
