Sebastian’s new novel Where My Heart Used to Beat, is out now, published by Hutchinson.

On a small island off the south coast of France,Robert Hendricks, an English doctor who has seen the best and the worst the twentieth century had to offer, is forced to confront the events that made up his life.

His host, and antagonist, is Alexander Pereira,a man whose time is running out, but who seems to know more about his guest than Hendricks himself does.

The search for sanity takes us through the war in Italy in 1944, a passionate love that seems to hold out hope, the great days of idealistic work in the 1960s and finally – unforgettably – back into the trenches of the Western Front.

The recurring themes of Sebastian Faulks’s fiction are here brought together with a new stylistic brilliance as the novel casts a long,baleful light over the century we have left behind but may never fully understand. Daring, ambitious and in the end profoundly moving, this is Faulks’s most remarkable book yet.

‘A masterpiece… This is a terrific novel, humming with ideas, knowing asides, shafts of sunlight, shouts of laughter and moments of almost unbearable tragedy’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Compelling… profoundly moving’ Independent on Sunday

‘Faulks just gets better and better with every book’ Daily Mail

Where My Heart Used to Beat is that rare book, a page-turning read that also has a significant intellectual and emotional charge. Destined for the bestseller lists, it deserves all of its success’
Five star review in the Sunday Express

‘Combining as it does the cultural narrative of a complex century forsaken by God and certainty, a serious investigation of the vulnerability of the human mind and an old-fashioned – in the best sense – story of love and war, this is an ambitious, demanding and profoundly melancholy novel’ Guardian

‘An ambitious exploration of memory and happiness' The Times
