CHILDEYES is the ultimate 21st century novel. The book explores the insider world of Washington DC with courage and talent. The affair between Maximilian and Esme is the most delicately balanced piece of writing I've read for some time. The interaction between the 'real' world and the beings at the singularity is mind-altering and thought-provoking. If you only buy one novel this decade, make sure it's CHILDEYES. A masterpiece!show more

Maximilian Moeran is an American Senator who's running for President. He's also a murderer, a womaniser and an ex-football star. Max is a polular man and he runs his political life without scruples - until he has a sexual affair with Esme, a young schoolgirl, and this is the only thing that troubles his conscience. One night, left alone in the dark on the fifty-yard line of a football stadium, Max changes. Suspected by family and friends of having had a nervous breakdown, Max becomes the thing he always appeared to be - an honest man. However, most people preferred the old Max and shun the new one. When Esme returns, some years later, seeking redress for the innocence he took from her, Maximilian has to make the ultimate choice. Childeyes is more than a beautifully crafted political parody, it asks some big questions about our concepts of good and bad - and guilt. Set in Washington DC - an insider world with as much charisma and sex-appeal as Hollwood - Childeyes examines life at its most essential. The Lolitesque affair between Max and Esme is controversial and taboo-breaking, but treated with sensitivity and without more
