About this title: Victor lived on mother's milk until six, then on charity, before working his way to wealth and power. In his old age, to avenge his blighted youth, Victor erects an erotic, glass-enclosed shopping arcade as a monument to himself. Award-winning author Jim Crace conjures a wholly original fiction world that's as spellbinding as it is uncannily familiar.
