EnglebyLarge Print - 2008
It is the 1970s, and Mike Engleby is a university student, having survived a 'traditional' school. A man devoid of scruple or self-pity, Engleby provides a disarmingly frank account of English education. Yet beneath the disturbing surface of his observations lies an unfolding mystery of gripping power. When one of his contemporaries unaccountably disappears, the reader has to ask: is Engleby capable of telling the whole truth? ENGLEBY can be read as a lament for a generation and the country it failed. It is also a poignant account of the frailty of human consciousness: heart-wrenching, funny - and written in the deepest shade of black.
