The events of Pietro Russell's life are told in 26 chapters. From A-Z each chapter is set in a different place and reveals a fragment of his story. As his memories flicker back and forth through time in his search for a resolution to the conflicts of his life, his story gradually unfolds...


"The best novelist of his generation" Scotsman "A conventionally-told tale in an unconventional narrative form" Financial Times "Faulks writes with great emotional authority... There are the same escapist pleasures, too: meals are described in rapt, mouthwatering detail, whitewashed villages and Mediterranean seascapes brought to such vivid life that you want to jump on the nearest aeroplane and see them for yourself" Sunday Times "Sebastian Faulks's third and most magnificent novel is a 'feel-good' experience from cover to cover" Daily Mail "Elevated by some delicate prose, particularly in evocation of childhood and adolescence, A Fool's Alphabet is a poignant and highly readable novel that runs the gamut of experience from well, from A to Z" Herald
