A Distant Likeness

A novel by

In "A Distant Likeness" Paul Bailey lays bare with a directness achieved through a mastery of a rich and complex style the pattern of a policeman's mind.
The novel adds a new dimension to the violence of newspaper headlines and illumines our society. As always in Paul Bailey's work, his exact and often marvellously funny dialogue, his unerring feel for social nuances and concern for wider issues have combined in a novel of importance that can be read and re-read.
