"Nine men. Each of them is at a different stage in life, each of them is away from home, and each of them is striving in the suburbs of Prague, in an over-developed Alpine village, beside a Belgian motorway, in a crap Cypriot hotel to understand just what it means to be alive, here and now. All That Man Is is a portrait of contemporary manhood, contemporary Europe and contemporary life from a British writer of supreme gifts a master of a new kind of realism which vibrates with detail, intelligence and devastating pathos, comic irony and surprise. " "David Szalay was born in Canada in 1974. His first novel, London and the South-East, won the Betty Trask Prize and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. His second and third novels, The Innocent (2009) and Spring (2011), were published by Jonathan Cape. In 2013 he was named as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists. He currently lives in Budapest."
