A Possible Life by Sebastian Faulks
Terrified, a young prisoner in the Second World War closes his eyes and imagines himself going out to bat on a sunlit cricket ground in Hampshire. Across the courtyard in a Victorian workhouse, a father is too ashamed to acknowledge his son. A skinny girl steps out of a Chevy with a guitar; her voice sends shivers up the spinal cord.
From the pain and drama of these highly particular lives emerges a mysterious consolation: the chance to feel your heart beat in someone else’s life.
Described as ‘profound’ by The Observer.
‘It does what any good novel should – it unsettles, it moves, and it forces us to question who we are.’ Sunday Times
