Edward Carey has created an extraordinary wonder of a novel based on the life of Madame Tussaud, from orphaned servant girl to the luxury of the Palais de Versailles, from surviving Robespierre's Terror to the wealth, status and security of Baker Street. Beautifully illustrated by the author, Little
is both an unconventional love story and an affecting and exuberant novel spanning an enormous stretch of momentous history, inspired by Marie Tussaud's own version of events...
Described as Gosford Park meets Inception by way of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a novel unlike any other. One of the most highly-anticipated debuts of 2018, merges the glamour and intrigue of classic murder mystery tropes with an innovative, Chinese box narrative that leaves the reader guessing until the very end. A brilliantly original high concept murder mystery from a fantastic new talent.
Join us for what looks set to be a gloriously fascinating evening of story telling and genre crossovers.
