Lucas Cage can now lay claim to the only part of his father's enormous legacy that he ever craved - The Works, the disused old printing house hard by the Thames. Lucas invites special people to share it with him: 'the family', as he comes to call them.'Connolly is a funny man . . . He creates a sense of intimacy and collusion with his reader that is rare in contemporary fiction.' Financial Times'The Works shows off Joseph Connolly's verbal glee, his relentless enjoyment of voices at full tilt. And in the monstrously loveable building, he offers readers a special treat.' Independent'Connolly manages to suggest an overarching allegory of almost Beckettian largeness and openness . . . Entertaining, but emotionally and intellectually involving too, Connolly's memorable novel is a story of the light that failed.' Daily Telegraph
