We Are Now Beginning Our Descent - James Meek (Paperback) 02-04-2009 Winner of Le Prince Maurice Prize 2008 (Mauritius). Long-listed for International IMPAC DUBLIN Literary Award 2010 (Ireland).
At the dawn of the twenty-first century Adam Kellas finds himself hurled on a journey between continents and cultures. In his quest from the war-torn mountains of Afghanistan to the elegant dinner tables of north London and then the marshlands of the American South, only the memory of the beautiful, elusive Astrid offers the possibility of hope. With all the explosive drama of The People's Act of Love, this is a spellbinding tale of folly and the pursuit of love from one of today's most talented and visionary writers.
