Sinopsis: Timothy Mo's first novel in a decade is set within the battle for secession in the Muslim regions of southern Thailand. Pure covers epic expanses of time and is told through narrators who range from fanatical zealots to decorated Oxbridge dons. Everything that Mo's readers expect abound in this long-awaited novel: versatile style, memorable characters, insight into those tormented by dual loyalties and the ability to handle the weightiest of themes with a light touch. By examining the cultural wars of the past and present, Pure's themes are among the most important of the day.
''A fantastic read...he's a wonderful writer.'' -- Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times
''A consistent joy of the book is Mo's voice or rather, voices. The cascade of multilingual puns and pan-global references nods to the work of Anthony Burgess, although that writer came to the far east as more of an outsider, and there is a frequent sense in Pure that Mo is setting down sentences that only he has the linguistic and cultural knowledge to write. Should have serious readers on their feet cheering'' -- Mark Lawson, The Guardian
''Soaring imagination, blistering wit, verbal felicity, narrative velocity'' -- The Independent
''Timothy Mo is a brilliantly inventive writer. Pure is a typically clever, funny, wide-ranging story.' '--The Times
"Richly funny...joyous and heartbreaking" --The Sunday Express
''Provides rich opportunities for Mo's wit.' ' --The Guardian
