Publisher Description

'One of the most productive, imaginative and risk-taking of writers... It is a clever, sexually explicit, fast-moving, full blooded yarn'
Irish Times

A Dead Man in Deptford re-imagines the riotous life and suspicious death of Christopher Marlowe. Poet, lover and spy, Marlowe must negotiate the pressures placed upon him by theatre, Queen and country. Burgess brings this dazzling figure to life and pungently evokes Elizabethan England.

The Barefoot Lunatics ,

AMAZING

An absolutely magnificent piece of work. Burgess fills out the silent spaces Marlowe's death has left behind in terms piecing together of the type of man he may have been. Outstanding.
