About the Author:

Paul Torday burst on to the literary scene in 2007 with his first novel, SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN, an immediate international bestseller that has been translated into 28 languages and has been made into a film starring Ewan McGregor, Kristin Scott Thomas and Emily Blunt. His subsequent novels, THE IRRESISTIBLE INHERITANCE OF WILBERFORCE, THE GIRL ON THE LANDING, THE HOPELESS LIFE OF CHARLIE SUMMERS, MORE THAN YOU CAN SAY, THE LEGACY OF HARTLEPOOL HALL and LIGHT SHINING IN THE FOREST, were all published to great critical acclaim. He was married with two sons by a previous marriage, had two stepsons, and lived close to the River North Tyne. He died at home in December 2013.

Review:

'Torday is one of the most original voices in modern fiction' LONDON METRO 'This hugely likeable book subtly highlights the surprising parallells between obvious con men and the rest of us who just want to make a fast buck.' -- Elizabeth Buchan SUNDAY TIMES 'A lively credit crunch satire...This debonair and elegantly written farce borrows from Wodehouse and Sharpe.' -- Emma Hagestadt INDEPENDENT 'A humorous and nuanced read' SUNDAY BUSINESS POST, Ireland 'Dog food, stately homes, gullible rich widows and a hostage crisis all combine a tragicomical contemporary morality tale packed with wit, pathos and sharp class observation.' -- Wendy Holden DAILY MAIL 'Poignant, funny, brilliantly-crafted, an outstanding story for our time.' TELEGRAPH & ARGUS
