If you want a book that intelligently probes the key issues preoccupying millennials in any profession, not just the law - this is it. - Alex Wade, The Times Will Being Simon Haines by Tom Vaughan MacAulay become the defining novel for his generation about what it means to be a driven corporate lawyer? - Edward Fennell, The Times, Meet Simon Haines. For a decade he's been chasing his dream: partnership at the legendary, family-run law firm of Fiennes & Plunkett. The gruelling hours and manic intensity of his job have come close to breaking him, but he has made it through the years and is now within a whisker of his millions: in less than two weeks, he will know the outcome of the partnership vote. He decides to spend the wait in Cuba in an attempt to rediscover his youthful enthusiasm and curiosity, and to clear his mind before the arrival of the news that might change his life forever. But alone in Havana he becomes lost in nostalgia and begins to relive his past...Set against the backdrop of an uncertain world, and charged with emotion, Being Simon Haines is a searching story about contemporary London and aspiration, values and love. Painting a picture of a generation of young professionals, it asks the most universal of questions: are we strong enough to know who we are? AUTHOR: Tom Vaughan MacAulay was born in Chester in 1980. He is a solicitor and currently lives in North London. He is in the process of completing his second novel.
