A God in Ruins relates the life of Teddy Todd – a would-be poet, heroic World War II bomber pilot, husband, father and grandfather – as he navigates the perils and progress of the twentieth century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge will be to face living in a future he never expected to have. This gripping, often deliriously funny, yet emotionally devastating book looks at war and the effect it has, not only on those who live through it, but on the lives of the subsequent generations.

Professional reviews

"Winner of the 2015 Costa Novel award - this is Kate Atkinson's stand-alone follow-up to Life After Life, one of the top selling adult novels of 2014. "Better than most fiction you'll read this year [...] Atkinson's prose is as bright as gunfire in the Second World War sections.” THE TIMES "With A God in Ruins (Kate), once again, proves herself to be a writer of considerable talent.” INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY"
