At It’s Rude To Stare, we are very much enjoying Andrew J. Lambie‘s debut novel, A Carnival of the Flesh. A tour de force of wit, whimsy, and untamable fantasy; precisely what the ‘literary doctor’ prescribed for your spring mental nutrition.
Summary: When a Victorian freak show is shipwrecked on a deserted island, it’s every freak for himself – a miserable prospect if you happen to be trapped inside a two-foot glass jar. Luckily for Dirty Boy, Cedric the Dwarf and Ruby the Hermaphrodite enjoy his company, and the three join forces to discover just what the devious Brigadier and his nefarious Kitten are scheming for the future of the global freak empire…
The novel is now available to order in limited edition, beautiful, cloth-bound hardback through the publisher, Guerilla Books’ website.
Andrew J. Lambie will be giving a talk and answering questions on the 29th of May at the Great Northern Railway Tavern in North London, for the Big Green Bookswap.
Praise for ‘A Carnival of the Flesh:’
“A Carnival of the Flesh is a sort of terrible delight – like sitting for a dinner of arsenic-fried-bat and discovering you quite like it” — Sean Preston, Editor of Open Pen Magazine.
