With GLOW, Ned Beauman has reinvented the international conspiracy thriller for a new generation. A hostage exchange outside a police station in Pakistan. A botched defection in an airport hotel in New Jersey. A test of loyalty at an abandoned resort in the Burmese jungle. A boy and a girl locking eyes at a rave in a South London laundrette . . . For the first time, Britain's most exciting young novelist turns his attention to the present day, as a conspiracy with global repercussions converges on one small flat above a dentist's office in Camberwell. 'Beauman's writing is dazzlingly inventive.' The Times 'I love Ned Beauman's novels.' Philip Hensher 'A singular and almost recklessly gifted, young writer.' Time 'Seriously intelligent and seriously funny at the same time.' Daily Telegraph 'Gobsmackingly clever' Vanity Fair 'Undoubtedly a writer of prodigious talent.' Financial Times 'A promising voice for the future of the written word and a force to be acknowledged in the here and now.' Dazed & Confused

Undoubtedly a writer of prodigious talent * Financial Times * Gobsmackingly clever * Vanity Fair * A promising voice for the future of the written word and a force to be acknowledged in the here and now. * Dazed & Confused * Seriously intelligent and seriously funny at the same time. * Daily Telegraph * A singular and almost recklessly gifted, young writer. * Time * I love Ned Beauman's novels. * Philip Hensher * Beauman's writing is dazzlingly inventive. * The Times * Describing a Ned Beauman novel is like describing a rainbow, or the smell of a garden after a rainstorm. Yes, it's just light refracting and wet earth, but these prosy facts can never convey how beautiful, how utterly evocative they are . . . A Ned Beauman novel is a bit like a conversation with the most intellectually curious person you'll ever meet, but not the kind you'd slowly edge away from at parties . . . Just be warned: one Ned Beauman novel will lead inexorably down a rabbit hole of immediately gobbling up his other two. Tell your friends you'll be offline for a while. * The Londonist * As breathlessly engrossing as any whodunnit. * Mr Hyde, Shortlist.com * Beauman's writing is extremely readable ... also interspersed with fantastic imagery and metaphor that made me laugh out loud at times.... Wholeheartedly recommend! * Blackheath Readers * Beauman's writing is brilliantly funny and memorable. He doesn't just have an eye for detail but also chooses just the right words to give his observations a surreal twist. * Express * It's exciting to witness someone mythologizing London with such brains and humour, shards of reality strung into something both synthetic and magical. * Daily Telegraph * Complex themes are introduced not least tangents into neuroscience and Burmese history, but we are rarely disorientated for long. The twists when they come are unexpected and satisfying. * Observer * Glow is elevated to another level altogether by its brilliantly inventive narrative style... I can't recommend Glow enough. * Learn This Phrase * ...an inventive supercharged conspiracy thriller... Beauman is an admirably lean storyteller... He is capable of startlingly economical lyricism and is able to capture observational detail with breathtaking skill * Spectrum, Scotland on Sunday * Refreshingly hip * Bookbag * Sexy and urgent * Literary Review * It is worth taking a moment to celebrate Beauman's great originality and skill... he is playful, arresting, unnerving, opulent, rude and - above all - deliciously, startlingly, exuberantly fresh. * Guardian * Stuff so good is restores your faith in fiction... Glow is also a thrillingly literary book: every page offers sentences that are a pure pleasure to read, rhythmic and witty, full of resonant variation. This is the real deal: no turgid lyricism here... Beauman is predictably excellent at managing the sinousities of his convoluted plot. But the real pleasure of Glow is to be found, as with all Beaumans' work, in watching his lucid, informed intelligence at work on the page. Beauman is a prodigy; he can do everything a novelist needs to be able to do .. and he does it all with such style that it looks effortless... It is the work of a writer who is already, at 29, something of a master. What more can you ask for than that? * Sunday Business Post (Ireland) * A good novel needs to immediately lure you in, taking away any excuse to seek entertainment elsewhere. On this point Ned Beauman certainly rises to the occasion...I can say, unequivocally, that Glow may mess with your head, but it is also addictively good. * The Times * Exciting , engaging and most importantly, really fun to read... effortless while also feeling sculpted with wonderful precision * Stylist * Glow is an inventive, supercharged conspiracy thriller set in contemporary London with occasional forays to Burma and Iceland . . . Beauman is an admirably lean storyteller and the acrobatic plot flips time zones and swaps points of view with the frantic,
