A 2004 Vacation Reading (selected by The New York Times)
“This frisky political novel by a British comedian concerns resistance to international capitalism's world empire and stars two brothers who have never met; one is a corporate shark who manipulates consciousness, the other an inept eco-terrorist.”
The three-strand narrative of this lively thriller starts with Chano Salgado, a reclusive young widower being chased by police and soldiers for blowing up pipelines that were draining the local groundwater. Meanwhile, in London, PR flack Evan Hatch is dying from leukemia. Hoping to find a bone marrow donor, he tracks down his long-lost brother in Mexico. In the third strand, Salgado’s 14-year-old son, given up for adoption, goes on his own journey to find his father a trip that will tie together all three strands in an unforgettable ending. An intricately plotted political thriller, The Fountain at the Center of the World is based on exhaustive research and the author’s compelling mix of political analysis and human compassion.
