Francis Spufford will be at Red Lion Books talking about his new paperback publication Light Perpetual, which was longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021.
November 1944. A German rocket strikes London, and five young lives are atomised in an instant. November 1944.
That rocket never lands. A single second in time is altered, and five young lives go on – to experience all the unimaginable changes of the twentieth century. Because maybe there are always other futures.
From the best-selling, prize-winning author of Golden Hill, Light Perpetual is a story of the every day, the miraculous and the everlasting. Ingenious and profound, full of warmth and beauty, it is a sweeping and intimate celebration of the gift of life.
‘Dazzling.’ The Times
Extraordinary.’ Financial Times
