The Northern Clemency - SIGNED - Philip Hensher

2008 - Fourth Estate, London - First Edition
‘Hensher’s novel is tremendously adroit, reminding us of what it’s like to sink luxuriously into the great novels of an earlier era: all-inclusive, interconnected, and lavishly detailed…’ – The New York Times

Set between the quiet suburbs of Sheffield and the bustle of London, and spanning twenty years, Philip Hensher’s epic novel – which follows the lives of two not quite upper-middle-class families who first encounter one another living on the same Sheffield street overlooking the Yorkshire moors – revisits the dawn of Thatcher’s Britain of the 1970s, and traces the volatile confidence and despair of the 80s, all the way through to the awakening of a new Britain in the 1990s.
