2019 Political Fiction Book prize long list

Perfidious Albion

Sam Byers

Published by: Faber

“Sam Byers’ Perfidious Albion offers a sharply drawn cartoon of our current moment, a Hogarthian picture of a nation drunk on its own rancorous opinions. It’s a book about rage, about those who seek to exploit it, and the unnerving ease with which online social networks can dissolve our connections to those we live alongside.”
