The extraordinary new novel from the author of international bestseller THE OTHER HAND.
Usually, this is where we’d tell you what this book is about. But with Chris Cleave, it’s a bit different.
GOLD is about the limits of human endurance, both physical and emotional. It will make you cry. GOLD is about what drives us to succeed – and what we choose to sacrifice for success.
It will make you feel glad to be alive. GOLD is about the struggles we all face every day; the conflict between winning on others’ terms, and triumphing on your own.
It will make you count your blessings.
GOLD is a story told as only Chris Cleave could tell it. And once you begin, it will be a heart-pounding race to the finish.
John Purcell: ‘Some books I like to gobble down in one sitting. Some books I like to savour over weeks. GOLD is the latter kind.’
