Chris Cleave (Little Bee) has a talent for launching readers directly into the hearts and minds of his characters. His new book, Gold, traces the journey of speed cyclists aiming for Olympic gold. This adrenaline-inducing novel examines friendship, ambition, tragedy and redemption with Cleave’s trademark humor, insight and compassion.

"Cleave uses his emotionally charged narrative to challenge his readers’ conceptions of civility, of ethical choice."
– New York Times


Chris Cleave talks about his novel Little Bee ($24.00). From the author of the international bestseller Incendiary comes a haunting work about the tenuous friendship that blooms between two disparate strangers—one an illegal Nigerian refugee, the other a recent widow from suburban London. Cleave is a columnist for The Guardian in London.
