Product description

Review

"Hamilton was a marvellous novelist who's grossly neglected" (Doris Lessing The Times)

"Patrick Hamilton wrote about pubs better than any other novelist... The wonderful 1935 trilogy, Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky, is set in a pub off the Euston Road. Every detail is spot on" (Independent on Sunday)

"A complex study of failed hopes and disappointed love" (Independent on Sunday)

"Patrick Hamilton was a writer's writer.... Seen as touchstones by authors from J.B. Priestley to Iain Sinclair" (The Times)

"Hamilton writes about street life with an honesty and lyricism, an absence of sentimentality or fetish for squalor, that should make nearly every hard-boiled writer hang his or her head in shame" (Charles Taylor Salon)
