About the Author


Author Picture

David Baddiel

A household name as a television comedian, David Baddiel is fast becoming recognised as a serious novelist of real literary merit. His new novel The Secret Purposes is an ambitious work which begins in the ghettos of 1930s Germany and moves to British internment camps, as it explores themes of immigration, race and love.

Synopsis of this title

Like most, Vic - amoralist extraordinaire - can remember where he was and what he was doing on the day of Princess Diana's death: at home, beginning an affair with his best friend's wife. As things become more complex between the two, tragedy - this time real, local and small-scale - intervene.

Reviews of this title


Love is a mysterious thing, and many things done in its name are downright unfathomable. Take two couples, make one bloke the most conspicuously awful yet oddly sympathetic imaginable, and watch what happens when you mix them up. Beginning with the global grief for Princess Diana, the pain of personal mortality is pinpointed here, and Baddiel's observations are stunningly apt. He's done his research, but above all, the four main characters are living and breathing, dreaming and despairing, with each supporting player given full five minutes in the limelight. The tale is a little soggy in the middle, swamping the reader with the complexities of the plot, but hindsight finally snaps every little piece into place. No dumbing-down here - a highly intelligent, enjoyable novel presenting the reader's favourite dilemma: devour it in one gulp, or spin it out, savouring each word. (Kirkus UK)
