Reviews

The book John Lanchester was born to write.
Brimming with perception, humane empathy and relish, its portrayal of this metropolitan miscellany is, in every sense, a capital achievement.
An exceptionally capacious and involving tale about disparate lives in turmoil on London's Pepys Road.... Lanchester makes us care deeply about his imperiled characters and their struggles, traumatic and ludicrous, as he astutely illuminates the paradoxes embedded in generosity and greed, age and illness, financial crime and religious fanaticism, immigration, exile, and terror. A remarkably vibrant and engrossing novel about what we truly value.--Donna Seaman
Effortlessly brilliant--gripping for its entire duration, hugely moving and outrageously funny.
Capital comes in a great tradition of novels which are filled with the news of now, in which the intricacies of the present moment are noticed with clarity and relish and then brilliantly dramatized. It is clear that its characters, its wisdom, and the scope and range of its sympathy, will fascinate readers into the far future.--Cรณlm Toibรญn, author of Brooklyn
Searching, expert, on the money. I loved it.--Joseph O'Neill, author of Netherland---
