Product description

Review

'At first it all seems simply an original prose style; but then it takes on a greater emotional weight: empathy' -- The Guardian
'Engaging and impressive debut…Seabrook is to be congratulated' --Times Literary Supplement

'Manifestly a product of sincere preoccupation as well as genuine talent' -- Sunday Times

'[A] decidedly creepy and unsettling corpse-strewn journey through the seaside towns of Kent. A sort of literary beachcomber, digging around in a grubby pool of fact, anecdote and tenuous connection, [Seabrook] begins with the tale of the painter and patricide Richard Dadd and ends with the supposed true story that inspired Joseph Losey's 1963 film The Servant.' --Lucy Scholes, BBC Culture

'‘Seabrook explores these legends, peppering the text with his own musings in an entertaining and engaging fashion' -- Waterstones Books Quarterly
'[Psychogeography] doesn't begin to capture its intense interest, its uncanny spookiness, the way it ensnares you, turning your stomach, messing with your head... All the Devils Are Here demands to be reread, picked over, endlessly discussed... And yet to know it is somehow not to know anything at all' --Rachel Cooke, Observer

Synopsis

David Seabrook takes the reader on a deranged exploration of the coast towns of Thanet and the Medway. He fuses his observation of these depressing landscapes, city centres full of unemployed men and asylum seekers and dodgy characters, with literary and historical associations that seem through his eyes more like bad dreams than heritage advertisements for the local tourist board.
