Praise
"Perhaps inspired by the New Wave science fiction of Michael Moorcock, the London crime novels of Jake Arnott, and the spy fiction of John le Carré (the author's father), the novel ends up being its own absurdist sendup of pulp story tropes and end-of-the-world scenarios. . . . Harkaway makes his novel great fun on every page."
"A touch early in the season for a beach book, though just the kind of thing to laugh at away from polite society. Top-notch." (starred review)
"[A] marvelous book, both sublimely intricate and compulsively readable." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation When a young and unassuming clock repairman fixes a particular clock, his life changes forever in Nick Harkaway's second novel, ANGELMAKER. Having a notorious criminal for a father has encouraged Joe Spork to keep a low profile and stay out of trouble. That's why he likes his work repairing the insides of time-keeping devices. Edie Banister, on the other hand, wishes she could control her clock and turn back time: the nonagenarian ex-spy is bored by old age and disillusioned with the contemporary situation. A series of strange events, however, set Joe and Edie off on a wild adventure that takes Joe out of his comfort zone, puts Edie back in the hot seat, and makes them both responsible for the future of the world.
