Publisher's Summary

What happens to a man who has his ear pressed to the lives of others but not much life of his own?

When Stephen Donaldson joins The Institute, he anticipates excitement, romance and new status. This becomes a reality when he is assigned a new case: Phoenix, in which he becomes mesmerized by the voice of the target's wife.

Dangerously in love and very lonely, Stephen sets himself up for a vertiginous fall that will forever change his life.

What the Critics Say

"The Long Room seems like the sort of novel that might have won the Booker around 1981. It says much about the author's...sensitivity to...human behaviour that it wouldn't look out of place in 2016." (Independent)

"Kay's atmospheric novel is partly a portrait of damage, and her unworldly protagonist a painfully vulnerable figure - which, as he becomes increasingly reckless, makes for some sweaty-palmed reading.... This skillfully calibrated thriller will keep you guessing." (Daily Mail)

    look no further.. the loneliness the dingy rooms... the awfulness of Thatcher Britain are all here.. the lioner caught between social classes... it's elegiac and moving.
