Author(s): David Seabrook
Twenty years ago, in a series of mysterious, incandescent writings, David Seabrook told of the places he knew best: the declining resort towns of the Kent coast. The pieces were no advert for the local tourist board. Here, the ghosts of murderers and mad artists crawl the streets. Septuagenarian rent boys recall the good old days and Carry On stars go to seed. Clandestine fascist networks emerge. And all the time, there is Seabrook himself - desperate perhaps, and in danger.Dark, strange and immediate, this is a classic work of sui generis British literature.There are devils here, and the reader will remember them.
A blistering, mysterious exploration of the Kent coast -- a dark, experimental, very British classic.
David Seabrook lived in Canterbury. His first book, All the Devils are Here (2002), required extensive research on a previously untouched subject he followed this with the historical book Jack of Jump (2006). He died in 2009.
