Proving Mr Jennings by James Walker
'When does libertarian become Nitroglycerine? When does protest become Semtex? At what point does the conviction you are right...become Gelgnite?' Charles Jennings QC arrives at a respected national hospital for a heart transplant. He is awoken into a sinister political nightmare in which he must battle the establishment to prove his innocence for a crime embedded within him. Beset by the spiralling logic of his condition, Mr Jennings struggles to save his name, his principles and ultimately - his life. An uproarious comedy about civil liberty in the face of paranoia, Proving Mr Jennings was awarded the King's Cross New Writing Award in 2004.
