One winter night in Prague, Helen Franklin meets her friend Karel on the street. Agitated and enthralled, he tells her he has come into possession of a mysterious old manuscript, filled with personal testimonies…
And so begins Melmoth, a tale that travels from 17th-century England to wartime Czechoslovakia, the tropical streets of Manila, and 1920s Turkey all told with Gothic verve and pace.
We are delighted to celebrate the paperback release of Melmoth with the prize-winning novelist of The Essex Serpent, Sarah Perry. Come and hear more!
‘Astonishingly dark … exquisitely balanced’ Francis Spufford
