“An excellent read. Had tears in my eyes.”


This month Eye Books publishes A Raindrop In The Ocean, a remarkable memoir of a life well lived.

Born in colonial Africa, Michael Dobbs-Higginson roamed the world as a teenager, working variously as a logger, a docker and an encyclopaedia salesman. He was ordained as a Buddhist monk in Japan and then rose to become an eccentric, kimono-wearing investment banker. 

His tales of drug-smuggling, bed-hopping and buccaneering business deals are seen through the prism of an Eastern religious wisdom honed over thousands of years.

And from Lightning Books comes Time of Lies, the second novel from Douglas Board. His previous novel MBA (2015) was a campus comedy. His new book – described by the Guardian as being in “the vanguard of Brexit fiction” – is set in 2020, when Britain has elected its own Donald Trump as prime minister.

Chris Mullin, author of the iconic political thriller A Very British Coup, hails it as “a milestone in dystopian fiction” and “the first post-truth, post-Brexit novel”.
