'Devastatingly funny . . . the route map to the crazed world of contemporary finance we have all been waiting  for'
WILL SELF
 
'For anyone still wondering what the hell those bankers did with our money, try John Lanchester's deliciously excoriating Whoops!'
ALLISON PEARSON

We are, to use a technical economic term, screwed. The cowboy capitalists had a party with everyone's money and now we're all paying for it. What went wrong? And will we learn our lesson – or just carry on as before, like celebrating surviving a heart attack with a packet of Rothmans?  John Lanchester has mastered the finer points of finance so you don't have to. In Whoops! he explains, in language everyone can understand, what really happened – and what on earth we do next.

'Explains with casual wit and total clarity why everything went wrong and makes sense of the most complex financial matters'
COLM TOIBIN

'Endlessly witty . . . will turn any reader into an expert within the space of 200 pages'  JONATHAN COE
