The Man Who Was ThursdayProduct Code: AD1009
Drawing on contemporary fears of anarchist conspiracies and bomb outrages, the setting is firmly set in its time and place - turn of the century London - but it also defies temporal boundaries. Police detective Gabriel Syme finds himself drawn into a world that has gone beyond humanity when he infiltrates the society of militant anarchists and is elected "Thursday", one of the members of the Central European Council of seven monarchs.
Dreamlike, prophetic and frequently funny, the novel attacks contemporary pessimism and through a bizarre series of pursuits and unmaskings, returns Syme - and us - to reality more aware of its beauty, promise and creative potential.
