London Gothic

Publication Date 10th November

PRE-order offer available now

In his fourth short story collection, an exploration of the dark side of modern London, Nicholas Royle redefines urban Gothic for the twenty-first century. Fifteen stories, dating from 2000 to the present day and including seven brand-new pieces, demonstrate Royle’s range of styles and techniques. Often writing against a background of film, art or literature, he unearths unease in the streets of Shepherd’s Bush, Hackney and South Tottenham, and creates uncanny effects with innovative, experimental forms.

London Gothic is the first in a projected series of city-based collections by Royle. Forthcoming volumes are devoted to Manchester and Paris.

My Second Home: Sylvia Plath in Paris, 1956

Sylvia Plath was in Paris during Easter 1956, alone in a hotel near
Notre Dame. She’d grown to love the city after spending Christmas there
with Richard Sassoon and she’d hoped he‘d be with her for Easter too,
but he hadn’t answered her letters. She’d met Ted Hughes a month
earlier; Ted was also in her head, and within ten weeks they’d be
married.

In the fourth book in his Art Decades series, Dave Haslam describes

this key period in Sylvia Plath’s life. We discover how she filled

those Paris days, including having dinner with an Italian communist,

embracing the idea of drunken afternoon sex with a friend of a friend, sketching in the park, and lying on her yellow bed in an attic room listening to the

sound of the Paris rain as she considered decisions and future plans:

in her phrase, ‘the fatal dance’ of choices and alternatives.
