Description

He adapted Evelyn Waugh's Scoop for television (1988) and also Waugh's Sword of Honour trilogy (2001). This was good - a novel with obvious depth, about a young naturalist arriving in a chimpanzee camp in Africa in the 70s.

Over the course of the book, Hope shares the events and casualties that led to her living alone on this beach. Blake, who was overwhelmed by the beauty and horrors of the natural world, saw nature as a place for our own growth, in preparation for the beginning of our lives.

His ninth novel, Restless, was published in September 2006 (Costa Book Award, Novel of the Year 2006) followed by, Ordinary Thunderstorms (2009), Waiting for Sunrise (2012), Solo (a James Bond novel – 2013) and Sweet Caress (2015). However recondite, however parochial, she was adding a few grains of sand to that vast hill that was the sum of human knowledge.
