Arthur C. Clarke Award: Best Novel nominee (1998).
Originally published to unprecedented and widespread praise ("exceptional brilliance" – Interzone, "sharp funny and brutal" – The Times) Days has been described as a cross between JG Ballard and even Jonathan Swift. It describes one day in the life of the Days gigastore, a massive shop seven storeys high and 2.5 kilometres on a side. Within its walls you can buy anything and everything. But there is a price to be paid.
A savagely funny satire on a society obsessed with consumption Days paints a picture of a future that is just around the corner. It is a remarkable feat of visionary writing; blackly funny, lyrical and tightly plotted. It has affirmed James Lovegrove's position as one of the key writers of fantastic fiction in the UK today.
