Book Summary

Pepys Road was once an ordinary London block, but housing prices have skyrocketed and the homes in the neighborhood are suddenly shockingly valuable. The neighborhood has an assortment of residents — a banker, a graffiti artist, Pakistani shop owners, a refugee meter maid — and they're all receiving odd, anonymous postcards demanding "We Want What You Have." Novelist John Lanchester takes readers back to 2008, at the peak of the housing crisis and global financial meltdown.
