On the glorious sands of the North Norfolk coast, Steve, the youngest member of the Fielding family, plays alone. But are these halcyon days? The great events of the Twentieth Century are about to sweep Steve and his sister Sonia into deep waters. Chance is all. The fortunes of the Fielding family continue through the storms of world events marking the outrageous years of the Twentieth Century.

"Walcot" reveals Aldiss at his formidable and all-embracing best.

Brian Aldiss has described this novel as his magnum opus. Aldiss says: “The most beautiful – and heavy – book I’ve ever had published. The history of the 20th century told through the experiences of one family.“

Colin Greenland had this to say in The Guardian: “Walcot, then, comes out as a sort of pageant, a chronicle of modern times with commentary from Aristotle – Steve is a lifelong devotee – and alternately jaundiced and cheerful reflections from Aldiss himself.“
