MR PYE: A Novel

MERVYN PEAKE    Book Number: 83174    Product format: Paperback

First published in 1953, this facsimile reprint may have some original typographic spots, but it is importantly the final novel by the world-renowned author of the Gormenghast novels. Dapper and smiling, Mr Pye comes to the island of Sark with a mission - to conquer evil. He immediately sets about changing everyone he meets from the formidable Miss George to the wanton, raven-haired Tintagieu. Unfortunately, Mr Pye is prone to excess. When the struggle between good and evil becomes embarrassingly personal, he is forced to embark on a campaign of unparalleled sin. In both text and his own delightful illustrations, Peake turns a moral battle into a fantastical, very funny adventure to give us a new experience through his extraordinary imagination. 278pp in paperback, 31 graphic line drawings by Mervyn Peake.
