'His most brilliant novel yet' Daily Telegraph

Mike Engleby has a secret...


This is the story of Mike Engleby, a working-class boy in the seventies who wins a place at an esteemed English university. A man devoid of scruple or self-pity, Engleby provides a disarmingly frank account of English education.

Yet beneath the disturbing surface of his observations lies an unfolding mystery of gripping power. When Jennifer, the fellow student he admires from a afar, disappears the reader has to ask: is Engleby capable of telling the whole truth?

'Engleby himself is the most vivid personality Faulks has yet devised... engagingly lucid and disarmingly funny...' Guardian

In my top ten books of all time

Mike Engleby is the outsider's outsider. If you like mysteries, books with self-deluded narrators, or mostly forgotten 1970s prog-rock bands, this book is for you. Unlike anything else I've ever read. I've read this three times and I'd read it again. Great.
