NEIL GAIMAN: 'Glorious. A story that will be found and enjoyed and dreamed about for years to come'
A celebration of friendship, courage and imagination inspired by Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Wizard of Oz.
__________________________
It all starts on the morning the letter D disappears from the language.
First, it vanishes from her parents' conversation at breakfast, then from the road signs outside. Soon the local dentist and the neighbour's Dalmatian are missing, and even the Donkey Derby has been called off.

Though she doesn't know why, Dhikilo is summoned to the home of her old history teacher Professor Dodderfield and his faithful Labrador, Nelly Robinson. And this is where our story really begins.

Set between England and the wintry land of Liminus, a world enslaved by the monstrous Gamp and populated by fearsome, enchanting creatures, D (Tale of Two Worlds) is a mesmerising tale of friendship and bravery in an uncertain world. Told with simple beauty and warmth, its celebration of moral courage and freethinking is a powerful reminder of our human capacity for strength, hope and justice.
'Dhikilo is a splendid heroine for our time: She stands for kindness, honesty and humanity' DIANE SETTERFIELD
'Young adult readers will love it, but Faber's brio and bubbly ingenuity will delight adult readers too.' Daily Mail

Om forfatteren

MICHEL FABER is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author of critically acclaimed novels, novellas and short stories, including The Crimson Petal and the White, The Book of Strange New Things, Under the Skin and the poetry collection, Undying: A Love Story. His latest work of fiction, D (A Tale of Two Worlds) is a modern-day fantasy fable which also commemorates the 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens's death. As well as tipping its hat to Dickens, it acknowledges its debt to James Thurber's The Wonderful O, C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia and Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Michel Faber was born in the Netherlands, grew up in Australia, spent twenty-five years in the far north of Scotland, and now lives on the south coast of England.

TELEGRAPH

«The deadpan style makes this more funny than scary. Faber's acknowledged debt to James Thurber's O is clear. It's very enjoyable»

SUNDAY EXPRESS

«Part affectionate homage, part exhuberant fan fiction, YA readers will love it, but Faber's brio and bubbly ingenuity will delight adult readers too»

DAILY MAIL

«Dazzling»

INDEPENDENT

«Glorious. There is such personal and political outrage about the world. But what makes it feel like a Real Story, one that will be found and enjoyed and dreamed about for years to come, is Dhikilo, a fabulous heroine and a real person on the page. Her adventure and bravery as she attempts to restore a missing letter to the world is beautifully written and delightfully told. I loved it»

NEIL GAIMAN

«In this rather ebullient and lovely new novel by Michel Faber ... older children and fully-grown adults will certainly find much to relish in it»

THE SCOTSMAN

«Michel Faber never fails to tell his story with wit, intelligence and charm»

SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

«A firecracker of a novel»

STUART KELLY, EDINBURGH LITERARY FESTIVAL 2020

«If ever a book like this was needed, it is now. Dhikilo is a splendid heroine for our time: She stands for kindness, honesty and humanity. Her triumph will have readers rejoicing»
