Award-winning foreign correspondent’s cerebral spy novel-cum-love story exposes humanity’s tenuous hold on a vast and relentless world.
J. M. Ledgard was born in the Shetland Islands. He has been a correspondent for The Economist since 1995, specialising in foreign political and war reporting. He currently works in Africa, travelling widely in the continent. He is also considered a leading thinker on risk and technology in emerging economies.
Submergence is a masterly evocation of the intricacy of life, humanand otherwise, but also of pain, pleasure, and the unknown depths. A strange and beguiling novel. The reader is pulled along by the undertow of Ledgard’s intelligence.”
