Product description


Compelling and masterful . . . a powerful and rich read (Elle)

A writer who never lets you down (Ali Smith)

Stella Duffy reinvents her personal wheel with every few books and this promises another exciting departure (Patrick Gale)

A great novel about South London and one that finds the essentially rural nature of its roots, Stella Duffy has made this exotic domain her own (Jake Arnott)

Crafted in glorious prose and teeming with genuine wisdom, London Lies Beneath is a story of youth, adventure, friendship and tragedy. Beautifully layered and anchored in extraordinary historical detail, this is a story that truly haunts. Be careful when you pick up this novel, it will stay with you forever (Priya Parmar)

As gloriously alive as the turn of the century south London streets it portrays (Red magazine)

Vivid ... [and] full of heart, Duffy's new novel is a fitting hymn to the city that inspired it (Financial Times)

A paean not just to South London, but to a vanished way of working-class life . . . Duffy's narrative is as fluid as a costermonger's patter, carrying the reader along (Daily Mail)

Hauntingly beautiful (Sunday Mirror)

Book Description

A compelling historical novel set in south London 1912 - based on a true story
