'This is a wonderful booK - I had imagined it would sink without trace, but Headline now has him on board and this is back. Fantastic' Sarah Broadhurst, BOOKSELLER
A writer of rare perception and endless imagination
Delightful... Inventively horrific... The chimerical stuff of nightmare and daydream
Exuberantly inventive... a postmodernist punk Faerie Queen
'The sort of book Terry Pratchett might produce if he spent a month locked in a cellar with Franz Kafka' Wire
Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre. There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, an Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining... And Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.Includes extra material exclusive to this Headline Review edition.
