The Story of Gulliver

Jonathan Coe

£7.99

‘Fresh, idiosyncratic and winning’ Observer

New paperback edition of one of the bestselling Save the Story titles: the disconcerting encounters of Lemuel Gulliver

“For the first time in his life, Gulliver felt ashamed of himself and his fellow-humans.”

Gulliver is a travel-hungry and adventurous ship’s doctor, who has the strange misfortune of being shipwrecked four times in as many voyages.

Here Jonathan Coe re-imagines Swift’s notorious satire on humanity, as Gulliver finds himself a giant among tiny humans in Lilliput; a tiny human among giants in Brobdignag; on the flying island of Laputa; and finally in the land of the Houyhnhnms, talking horses who think precious little of human ‘Yahoos’.
