The Champion your first choice for quality books
'Tim Binding's somewhat mirthless comedy may be set during the last boom but its portrait of nihilistic excess still feels as relevant as Martin Amis's Money, although Binding's neat satire is to swap the City for the provinces, where the most forceful personality is only as big as his small-town horizons . . . his portrait of wealth's toxic appetites has a corrosive appeal, in much the same way, perhaps as the grotesque and ambiguous Large.' --Metro'Tim Binding makes a valiant attempt at the great British novel . . . Spanning the Eighties and Nineties, The Champion charts the influence of Thatcherism on provincial life.' --Daily Mail'We are in Jonathan Coe territory here . . . Whatever the rhetoric is about class, it persists deeply' --Tom Sutcliffe, Saturday Review'A bit like Martin Amis strained through Leonard Rossiter. . . Very, very intelligent' --Pat Kane, Saturday Review'Brash, forceful and principle-lite, the Thatcherite hero started making his presence felt in fiction long before Mrs Thatcher's fall. . . Two decades later his place has naturally been usurped by the post-Thatcherite - Majorite, or even Blairite - hero, of whom Clark "Large" Rossiter, frontman of Tim Binding's latest novel, is thoroughly representative . . . like much of Binding's work, The Champion combines some tart reflections on "Englishness" with a Kentish setting.' --Independent'The Champion is another nationally anatomical narrative in the manner of Binding's earlier works and of Alan Hollinghurst's The Line of Beauty . . . and Philip Hensher's The Northern Clemency. . . . Vividly symbolic of the acquisitive zeal that was introduced to Britain by Thatcherism but eagerly adopted by Blairism, Large teems with schemes for the lucrative reform of polite local society, leveraging shares of pubs and garden centres. . . In a theme shared with another current state-of-nation novel, Linda Grant's We Had It So Good, The Champion warns against trying to impose patterns on life. The novel, though, is finely organised. Small details - such as the presence at a party of "Ben with his partner Andy who worked for Channel 4" - convey larger English shifts in the background, and there's a terrific play-off of plot strands when, at a family occasion, two characters brutally use against each other pieces of information they picked up earlier. Befitting his surname, Binding proves deft, as in his earlier novels, at tying together the personal and the political.' --Mark Lawson, Guardian'The novel is written with considerable verve and Tim Binding delights in exposing the timid complacency and selfish greed of Middle England... there is a vigour to the novel which cannot but carry the reader, sometimes appalled but generally unresisting, along' --The Scotsman'Binding's expansive portrait of life in the orbital South East is lit up with passages of real descriptive power and dark comedy. The plot moves along at an invigorating pace, and the characters, none of them especially likeable, neatly embody a small-town show-down between the old world and the new. It's an engaging and gutsy novel that reminds us that boom and bust is a story that never goes away.' --The Lady'This is a brilliant small-town story of Britain's recent past... Magnificent social satire' --The Times'Was there ever a time when things were settled, when people knew their place? The narrator of this superlative novel from Tim Binding certainly thinks so... Binding's novel is an achingly poignant, thoughtful, and involving satire. Everybody is flawed: and yet, somehow, it isn't bleak, ending with a beautifully judged lament at the passing ways of tradition and class... Binding's talent for such nuances make this one of the finest novels in an already promising year.' --Philip Womack'In casting a cool and analytical eye over the changes in society, Binding identifies Britain as materialistic and flabby as well as vulnerable. He is sharp and observant and constructs an angry analysis of the effect of Thatcher's belief that "there is no such thing as society" with everyone out for themselves. While weaving a complex and engrossing narrative with characters who are all flawed and unsympathetic, Binding moves into fantastical action... a fitting, if slightly uneasy, ending to a highly readable tale.' --Tribune --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
