Hangover Square, Paperback / softback Book

Hangover Square Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The seventy-fifth anniversary edition, with a new introduction by Anthony Quinn. 'I recommend Hamilton at every opportunity, because he was such a wonderful writer and yet is rather under-read today.

All his novels are terrific' Sarah Waters'If you were looking to fly from Dickens to Martin Amis with just one overnight stop, then Hamilton is your man' Nick HornbyPatrick Hamilton's novels were the inspiration for Matthew Bourne's new dance theatre production, The Midnight Bell. London, 1939, and in the grimy publands of Earls Court, George Harvey Bone is pursuing a helpless infatuation.

Netta is cool, contemptuous and hopelessly desirable to George.

George is adrift in a drunken hell, except in his 'dead' moments, when something goes click in his head and he realises, without a doubt, that he must kill her.

In the darkly comic Hangover Square Patrick Hamilton brilliantly evokes a seedy, fog-bound world of saloon bars, lodging houses and boozing philosophers, immortalising the slang and conversational tone of a whole generation and capturing the premonitions of doom that pervaded London life in the months before the war.
