Description Small Crimes in an Age of Abundance de Matthew Kneale:

The author of the award-winning novel English Passengers takes readers around the world in twelve deftly crafted stories that illuminate the uncertainties of life at home and abroad.
Matthew Kneale received high praise for the prize-winning English Passengers, an epic romp on the high seas and across nineteenth-century cultures, ingeniously woven together by a multitude of narrators. In Small Crimes In An Age of Abundance, Kneale brings his mastery of storytelling to our present morally ambiguous world. Set in lands ranging from England to China, South America, the Middle East, and Africa, these powerfully themed stories follow ordinary people as they try to survive and make sense of their worlds.
We follow a well-intentioned English family who leave their tour group in China to travel alone, and collide with the ruthless side of the country, slowly becoming complicit in its violence- a ploddingly respectable London lawyer who chances upon a stash of cocaine and realizes it offers the wealth and status he hungers for- a salesman in Africa who becomes caught up in a riot that turns his life upside down- a self-doubting suicide bomber.
Kneale transports readers across continents in a nanosecond, reaching to the heart of faraway societies with rare perceptiveness. As the stories gain momentum -- tense, funny, and always compassionate -- they make readers see the world in a new way. At times reminiscent of Julian Barnes's A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters, at times Primo Levi's The Periodic Table, Small Crimes In An Age of Abundance is a groundbreaking book, by a master narrator of the uncertainties of our time. Matthew Kneale is the author of serveral novels, including "English Passengers," which won the Whitbread Book of the Year 2000 award and was short-listed for the Booker Prize. He lives in Rome, Italy.
