One of Us
It is March, 2003, and a leading political journalist and a 42-year-old woman meet at a dingy London cafe in the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq. Anna Adams has a story to tell - one that goes right to the top of the Cabinet. It involves her adored brother, Jack, the black sheep of the family, who has committed an act both shocking and violent that the authorities have tried to cover up. Anna is determing to defend and honour him, whatever the cost...
"At the heart of One of Us lies not political betrayal but marital infidelity... Fascinating - a glimpse of an enduring human tragedy."
"Benn is wonderful on the telling details of family life... [she] has succeeded in bringing the ancient themes of Sophocles up to date with a keen eye, a subtle intelligence, and an unwavering decency."
"A sly, sensitive and pertinent novel about a very modern form of disillusionment - not just with the private contract of marriage but with the public one between a government and its electorate."
