Elizabeth Day's Feast is a harrowing novel about obsession, betrayal, privilege and hypocrisy at the heart of the British establishment, for fans of Brideshead Revisited and The Lost History.

Martin Gilmour and Ben Fitzmaurice have been best friends for twenty-five years, ever since they met at Burtonbury School. They form a separate couple: a working-class son and the golden boy from an aristocratic family. Martin knows that their friendship is being questioned by others, but he will do anything for Ben. He even keeps Ben's biggest secret.

On Ben's 40th birthday, surrounded by the British establishment that indulges in champagne and drugs, Martin feels once again that he doesn't belong. His wife Lucy, who has been suspicious from the start, also senses that there is danger in the air. But Ben would never do anything to risk the friendship. However?

The party is a razor-sharp critique of the British elite and the unwritten laws of the upper class.

***** 'A wonderful class satire and a compelling thriller in one, which has been compared to Donna Tartt's The Hidden History.' - Judith Eiselin in NRC Handelsblad

**** 'A razor-sharp filleting session of the so-called elite, English Style. You can laugh about it. Crying is also allowed.’ – Koen Eykhout in De Limburger

'We're looking forward to this pitch-black psychological thriller about the unwritten laws of the British upper class.' – The VPRO guide.
