All That Follows

All That Follows

Jim Crace

From the masterful author of Being Dead and Quarantine, a hypnotic novel about what it means to be a hero.

Leonard Lessing once cast a spell on stage, hypnotizing crowds with his improvised jazz, easy in his music, at home in the moment. Now, home is somewhere he never leaves. His sax is silent, his marriage faltering, his stepdaughter vanished, and his life shrinking – until one afternoon the TV brings news he can’t ignore. A figure from his firebrand past has arrived in town, with hair-raising results. Can Leonard face the limelight one last time?

‘Rich, cleverly constructed . . . a funny, heartwarming and hugely enjoyable read’ Herald

‘Alive and kicking . . . Crace writes with real feel and imagination about music’ Sunday Times

‘Blending comedy with a touch of pathos, this is an unexpectedly joyful novel’ Daily Mail
