Tricky things, memories. Not always the way you remember them.

When Ben, a successful London lawyer, returns home for his father's funeral after thirteen years away, he is confronted with uncomfortable truths about the community and family he left behind.

Anders Lustgarten, one of Britain's bravest and toughest writers of political fiction, produces an unflinching, insightful and utterly hilarious look at sibling rivalry, small town blues and exactly where the new British fascism comes from.

This edition was published to coincide with the world premiere of The City and the Town in February 2023.
