The fascinating, and largely autobiographical, sequel to J G Ballard's prize-winning 'Empire of the Sun', that follows Jim to post-war England. 'The Kindness of Women' continues the story of the boy whose life in Japanese-occupied Shaghai was described so memorably in 'Empire of the Sun'. it sets those traumatic events within the context of a lifetime as we follow the narrator, Jim, to England after the war. He tries and fails to find stability as a medical student at Cambridge and a trainee RAF pilot in Canada. Then, after settling happily into family life, his world is ripped apart by domestic tragedy. He plunges into the maelstrom of the 1960s, an instigator and subject of every aspect of cultural, social and sexual experimentation. All this and much more, we see as the attempt of a bruised mind to make sense of the upheaval around it.

Burgess's ambitious study of 20th-century history centers on the stormy relationship between an effete, popular novelist and a Faustian priest. (Publisher's Weekly) Kenneth Toomey is an eminent novelist of dubious talent; Don Carlo Campanati is a man of God, a shrewd manipulator who rises through the Vatican to become the architect of church revolution and a candidate for sainthood. These two men are linked not only by family ties but by a common understanding of mankind's frailties. In this epic masterpiece, Anthony Burgess plumbs the depths of the essence of power and the lengths men will go for it.

The Mallen Litter is the third and final part of the multi-generation story of the Mallens, which began with The Mallen Streak and continued with The Mallen Girl. From generation to generation bad luck and misfortune had befallen each and every member of the Mallen family. Passed from son to son, each had been cursed with a dramatic white streak in their jet black hair. It seemed as though the ghost of old Thomas Mallen himself lived on in his unfortunate descendants. Barbara had no visible streak to identify her as a Mallen but she spent her life trying to forget her parentage. When her triplets - the Mallen litter - were born, there in one of her sons was the unmistakable sign of the Mallen streak. How long would she have to wait to see if history would repeat itself?
