The acclaimed author of the #1 international bestseller Little Bee and the multi-award winning debut novel Incendiary, delves into the drive to succeed and reveals the personal cost of public victory in his new novel, Gold.

Zoe and Kate, two Olympic hopefuls in the sport of sprint cycling, are sworn enemies on the track and best friends off it. That safe line becomes blurred as the two women grow up through three successive Olympics – Athens, Beijing and London – during which their lives, in private and in public, become intensely intertwined.

Capturing the intensity and heat both on the velodrome track and in the intimate moments of these characters’ lives, Gold is a moving testament to friendship and rivalry, to the choices we make and the redemption we seek.

Cleave will be interviewed by Vaddey Ratner, the New York Times bestselling author of In the Shadow of the Banyan.
