About the Author:
Paul Torday was born in 1946 and read English Literature at Pembroke College, Oxford. He burst on to the literary scene in 2006 with his first novel, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, an immediate bestseller that has been sold in 19 countries. He is married with two sons by a previous marriage and has two stepsons and lives close to the River North Tyne.
Review:
"Torday tells ths story in reverse, a familiar narrative device used effectively here" -- Shyamantha Asokan, THE BIG ISSUE

"a heart-wrenching tale of alcoholism and a lonely man's search for identity.. a mesmerising page-turner" -- Anthony Gardner, Mail on Sunday

"a really good book by a really talented writer" -- A BOOK A WEEK BLOGSPOT

"a well-told tale.. Torday wryly observes Wilberforce's descent" -- Paul Dunn, THE TIMES

"grows more and more poignant as the novel progresses.. satisfyingly full-bodied and slips down a treat" -- Peter Parker, SUNDAY TIMES

"marks him out as a writer of serious promise, whose achievements in this second novel hint at bigger, better works to come." -- Fiona McCann, IRISH TIMES

"the pages practically turn themselves and the closing lines of the book, after such a heady brew, are so deliciously sobering" -- JOHN SELF ASYLUM BLOGSPOT

"the whole book is delightfully written.. Paul Torday is a remarkably original novelist" -- David Sexton, EVENING STANDARD

'What makes us want to find out about Wilberforce is Torday's wonderful prose - the same simple, clear writing that made Salmon Fishing so readable.' -- Susan Elderkin, FINANCIAL TIMES

'he has a good feeling for character and a sly sense of humour' -- David Robson, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
