            How much money is enough? How powerful do you want to be? And what price will it extract from you? An intriguing, powerful and hardhitting novel of the world of finance, big business and dealmaking, written by a leading business insider. Charles lives in the testosterone-driven, ...high-powered, brutal world of investment banking. It is a world dominated by money, deals, bonuses, backstabbing, endless front and manoeuvring, bluff, bravado and savagery. Charles is a master of this world. Each day he shrugs on a metaphorical suit of armour and goes out into a dog-eat-dog world to do deals. He's a man who is used to casual brutality after all - his childhood saw to that. But there is a price to pay. Charles has put that armour on, piece by heavy, painful piece, in order to survive his childhood first, and then the casual brutality of his chosen world. He's learnt - through his childhood and through the vicious cut and thrust of the deal-making years - to keep his armour on at all times. But now, at the peak of his career, his armour is rusted and bloodstained and no longer protecting him the way it used to. He finds himself empty. Always cold. No friends. A distant wife. Children who barely know him. Over the course of two days, everything in Charles' life comes into question. His carefully constructed world is starting to splinter apart - and he's splintering too. All these compromises he's accepted, all the careful arrangements he's made and all the rigid structures he's allowed to calcify around him, are no longer holding together - the centre, crucially, is not holding, to use Yeats' phrase. This is a story of a man whose world is falling apart - and the very start of his putting it back together. Shocking and at times immensely moving, Man in Armour is a compelling novel, written with a sharp-eyed, incisive focus that also carries real emotional - and moral - resonance. Written by an ultimate business insider - a woman who knows intimately and at first hand this worl

            THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER 'Out of the secret world I once knew, I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for reality. Then back to the imagining, and to the desk where I'm sitting now.' From his years... serving in British Intelligence during the Cold War, to a career as a writer that took him from war-torn Cambodia to Beirut on the cusp of the 1982 Israeli invasion, to Russia before and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, John le Carre has always written from the heart of modern times. In this, his first memoir, le Carre is as funny as he is incisive - reading into the events he witnesses the same moral ambiguity with which he imbues his novels. Whether he's writing about the parrot at a Beirut hotel that could perfectly mimic machine gun fire, or visiting Rwanda's museums of the unburied dead in the aftermath of the genocide, or celebrating New Year's Eve with Yasser Arafat, or interviewing a German terrorist in her desert prison in the Negev, or watching Alec Guinness preparing for his role as George Smiley, or describing the female aid worker who inspired the main character in his The Constant Gardener, le Carre endows each happening with vividness and humour, now making us laugh out loud, now inviting us to think anew about events and people we believed we understood. Best of all, le Carre gives us a glimpse of a writer's journey over more than six decades, and his own hunt for the human spark that has given so much life and heart to his fictional characters. 'No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times' Guardian 'John le Carre is as recognizable a writer as Dickens or Austen' Financial Times 'When I was under house arrest I was helped by the books of John le Carre ...they were a journey into the wider world ...These were the journeys that made me feel that I was not really cut off from the rest

            • RRP: $44.99

            • In Stock At Publisher

            Prophetic short stories and apocalyptic novels like The Crystal World made J. G. Ballard a foundational figure in the British New Wave. Rejecting the science fiction of rockets and aliens, he explored an inner space of humanity informed by psychiatry and biology and shaped by Sur...realism. Later in his career, Ballard's combustible plots and violent imagery spurred controversy--even legal action--while his autobiographical 1984 war novel Empire of the Sun brought him fame. D. Harlan Wilson offers the first career-spanning analysis of an author who helped steer SF in new, if startling, directions. Here was a writer committed to moral ambiguity, one who drowned the world and erected a London high-rise doomed to descend into savagery--and coolly picked apart the characters trapped within each story. Wilson also examines Ballard's methods, his influence on cyberpunk, and the ways his fiction operates within the sphere of our larger culture and within SF itself.
