Publisher's Summary

London, 1939, and in the grimy publands of Earl's Court, George Harvey Bone is pursuing a helpless infatuation.

Netta is cool, contemptuous and hopelessly desirable to George. George is adrift in a drunken hell except in his dead moments, when something goes click in his head and he realises, without a doubt, that he must kill her.

In the darkly comic Hangover Square, Patrick Hamilton brilliantly evokes a seedy, fog-bound world of saloon bars, lodging houses and boozing philosophers, immortalising the slang and conversational tone of a whole generation and capturing the premonitions of doom that pervaded London life in the months before the war.

    "Fine novel"

    This is a fine, sad novel, beautifully read - nuanced and attentive to Hamilton's prose: bitter, bleak and involving

    "Fascinating study on relationships pre-war"

    Beautifully read, the story has a mesmerising rhythm that draws you along to the climax. The details of Pre-WWII London are fascinating 75 years on
