“Utterly engaging….A novel of ideas, of big themes….William Boyd is a champion storyteller.” - New York Times Book Review William Boyd’s classic Brazzaville Beach has been called as a “bold seamless blend of philosophy and suspense… [that] nevertheless remains accessible to general readers on a level of pure entertainment.” (Boston Globe). Released to coincide with Boyd’s latest novel, Ordinary Thunderstorms, Brazzaville Beach tells the story of a British primate-researcher who relocates to war-torn Africa in the wake of her husband’s tragic descent into mental illness. Intense, exhilarating, and engrossing, Brazzaville Beach is “rich in action and thought,” and William Boyd “a writer who allows the scope of his work to expand to the point of bursting.” (Los Angeles Times Book Review)
