An Honourable Man is set in the tumultuous world of late Victorian England. Beginning in the Sudan and London of 1884, this extraordinary new novel is played out against the shambolic end of the Empire. Slovo draws on the lives of two real men: Charles Gordon, an heroic, hubristic, career army man whose refusal to obey orders helped bring down the Gladstone government, and W T Stead, editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, the father of tabloid journalism. Their story iintercuts with the tale of a poor, working woman in London.

1884/85 Khartoum and General Gordon. This story spans the personal and epic and addresses the folly of Empire and the concept of goodness. Very good.
