Kavanagh begins his life patrolling the Wall. If he's lucky, he only has two years of this, 729 more nights. He will soon find out what Defenders do and who the Others are. Along with the rest of his squad, he will endure cold and fear day in and day out. But somewhere, in the dark cave of his mind, he thinks: wouldn't it be interesting if something did happen, if they came, if you had to fight for your life? Describing a broken and recognisable world, Lanchester's hypnotic dystopian novel wears it's polemic lightly while exploring the most compelling issues of our time.
