Andrew O‘Hagan’s debut book mixes reportage. social history and memoir to examine the phenomenon of missing people in the UK. Every year over 250.000 people disappear in Britain. Prompted by his childhood in Glasgow during the time of the Bible John murders, O’Hagan has explored the lives of those who have gone missing and how it has affected those who were left behind. Cutting through both tabloid-style sensationalism and overly dry reporting. The Missing is an eloquent and thoughtful dissection of late 20th century society.
