Capital by John Lanchester

Lanchester rarely disappoints and certainly not with this  ‘state of the nation’ or at least a proportion of the nation highly readable book.

The cosmopolitan residents of one London street are the cast, the impact of the recent global financial crisis is part of the backdrop and a five word message the catalyst.  Lanchester takes these in his masterly way and creates a funny, moving and very clever story.

Not much else to say really, except Buy or Borrow and Enjoy.
