Customer Review

on 21 December 2013
The diseased underbelly of Kent - more darkly glamorous than that may sound.

David Seabrook has a fresh theory on the genesis of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and a glorious putdown for that scrofulous dump Chatham. A ramble through the coastal Kent undergrowth unearths Lord Haw haw and his daughter, John Buchan and the 39 steps, the British Union of Fascists, the drunken decline of Charles Hawtrey and other compulsive predators, TS Elliot, Freddie Mills, and much more.

Full of arcane knowledge and well written, with occasional poetic flourishes. An absorbing page turner that will repay repeat reading.
