4 Bones Sleeping By Gerald Wixey
Paperback: $14.93
Prints in 3-5 business days
The book switches between post-war London and a small market town in Oxfordshire. A London club full of outrageous characters, spivs, extortionists, con-men & ladies of the night. This contrasts... More > starkly with a rural backwater, where it’s all wide lawns and narrow minds. The story is narrated by Jack, a clever (too clever) reporter and his relationship with two brothers, Wyn a womanising con-man and Harry, a professional boxer. Teddy Lewis, an unstable racketeer and Shirley, a gorgeous femme fatale. Shirley twists them all this way and that, in the end she proves to be the catalyst for an ending fitting for a bloodthirsty Greek tragedy. This has all of the elements that the discerning thriller reader craves, betrayal, revenge, older men exploiting a beautiful, under-age girl, a murder or two, convoluted plot twists, powerful & credible characters, dialogue that crackles and a gothic romance. This is literary noir at its best.< Less

Yann Bink's revolutionary play, now available for the first time in print, is a sprawling examination of the lives of boys and their dads. Set in an ethereal time and place, Mr. Wimbledy follows Son... More > Boy, one of modern literature's most iconic, shrill little scamps, through a subversive and labyrinthine exploration of the paternal condition. Having lost his Pipsy, Son Boy is assigned a new dad: the mysterious, wealthy, and dazzling Mr. Wimbledy - and Son Boy's world is forever changed.

His play, unlike him, runs free of constraint, attempting literary and metaphysical experiments never found in the medium before, creating a reading experience like none other. Three years after its performance and Bink's subsequent arrest, this work remains lucidly contemporary; it is easily Bink's most enduring work and his only work.< Less
