The breathtaking new novel from the great chronicler of our age.

A Revolution of the Sun tells the story of one momentous year through the eyes of the people who lived it. It begins at the stroke of midnight on the first day of 1997. As the year turns, a group of disparate individuals from different backgrounds, from all corners of the country, embark on separate journeys which will converge over the course of the next twelve months: Rebecca, mother-to-be; Sam, amnesiac; Roderick, conservative MP; Jack, truck driver; Martha, cat burglar; Ben, hemiplegic child; Solo, his father. At the end of the year, their lives are irrevocably changed, some for better, some for worse. Ambitious, powerful, irresistible, A Revolution of the Sun is the work of a writer at the peak of his powers.
