Be the first to find out about the book that has everyone talking in the USA. Nathan Hill is here on a UK tour for a few short days to discuss his remarkable debut novel, The Nix, a book that ‘could well be the most ambitious novel of the year’ (The Telegraph). Meet Samuel: stalled writer, bored teacher, obsessive player of online games. He hasn't seen his mother, Faye, in decades, not since she abandoned her family when he was a boy. Now she has suddenly reappeared, having committed an absurd politically motivated crime that electrifies the nightly news, beguiles the Internet, and inflames a divided America.
