Written by the Booker-shortlisted author of Hot Milk, Stardust Nation is an unsettling and unforgettable exploration of memory, identity and how we are, all of us, connected. For the high-flying, heavy drinking advertising boss Tom Banbury, the art of persuasion relies on an infiltration of the consumer's mind. In the case of his colleague and confidante Nikos Gazidis, the overdeveloped sense of empathy that suits him to the business has given rise to a strange psychiatric condition. Nick has unwittingly crashed into the consciousness of his boss. While Tom drinks to forget the troubles of his earthly life, Nick is forced to confront a past that is not his own: a childhood scarred by the small wars waged by an abusive father – and by the events that brought them to a close. When Nick enters the panicked silence of the Abbey, a fortress for the rich and unstable, his sister guards him from the visiting Tom Bradbury. But can this peculiar bond be broken or has Nikos Gazidis taken an empathetic leap too far? "Levy's strength is her originality of thought and expression. " Jeanette Winterson
