My overall favourite book never quite got the TLC it deserved (perhaps fair for a book starring Adolf Hitler!), but here at last I’m delighted to say that A Man Lies Dreaming will be coming out again in the UK in a brand spanking new paperback edition from Head of Zeus! It will be out next month (here’s a handy Amazon link). This is a book that’s had some fantastic covers, and Head of Zeus didn’t let me down on that front!
(More A Man Lies Dreaming news shortly!)
‘A twisted masterpiece’ Guardian
1939: Adolf Hitler, fallen from power, seeks refuge in a London engulfed in the throes of a very British Fascism. Now eking a miserable living as a down-at-heels private eye and calling himself Wolf, he has no choice but to take on the case of a glamorous Jewish heiress whose sister went missing.
It’s a decision Wolf will very shortly regret.
For in another time and place a man lies dreaming: Shomer, once a Yiddish pulp writer, who dreams lurid tales of revenge in the hell that is Auschwitz.
Prescient, darkly funny and wholly original, the award-winning A Man Lies Dreaming is a modern fable for our time.
