In his excellent new novel, The Wall, John Lanchester imagines what might happen if we built a wall around the UK coastline to keep ‘the Others’ out. Beaches no longer exist and the sea can only be viewed from high ground, but everyone’s safe – in theory. Are the Others really that different to us? John explores where the generational divide over immigration and climate departure might lead and whether it’s a world we really want to live in.
John is the author of five books of non-fiction, including Whoops! Why Everyone Owes Everyone and No One Can Pay; and five novels, including Capital, which became a BBC series.
