But Thomas's new-found sense of freedom comes at a price: two British spies are following him.For fans of Jonathan Coe's classic comic bestsellers What a Carve Up! and The Rotters' Club, this hilarious new novel, which is set in the Mad Men period of the mid 50s, will also be loved by readers of Nick Hornby, William Boyd and Ian McEwan.'Clever and funny, enthralling and moving.
