About the Author
The author of six previous novels--most recently, "The Book of Revelation"--Rupert Thomson was born in England and now lives with his wife and their daughter in Barcelona.
"[Thomson] is a true master. . . . He creates a glittering palate of characters [with] extraordinary insight into the bizarre psychology that makes us all unique--or makes us all the same--depending on how you see the world." –San Francisco Chronicle
“If you’re already a fan of Rupert Thomson’s novels, all I have to tell you is that he has a new one. . . . Divided Kingdom is Thomson’s best yet; it might, in fact, be his Brave New World.” –Salon
“It would be cruel to deprive anyone of the imaginative pleasures, surprise and suspense that . . . Divided Kingdom offers. Thomson’s new world order is utterly menacing and intensely satisfying.” –Newsday
“Thomson’s sharp mind and dry wit are in top form. . . . A worthy successor to such iconic nightmares as 1984 and A Clockwork Orange.” –The Seattle Times
