Description

Jem Kellaway and his family feel far from home. The Kellaways struggle to find their place in the tumultuous London city, alive with repercussions from the blood-splattered French Revolution. Luckily streetwise Maggie Butterfield is on hand to show Jem the ropes. Together they encounter the neighbour they’ve been warned about - radical poet and artist William Blake. Jem and Maggie’s passage from innocence to experience becomes the very stuff of poetic inspiration.

Professional reviews

"Flames and funerals, circus feats and seduction, neighbours and nakedness - a sparkling historical drama… 'Her pen-sketches of the squalor, smells and sounds of low-life London flesh out the history into immediacy.’ FINANCIAL TIMES 'A subtle clarity of style, quirky but seldom over-drawn characters, engaging touches of domestic detail and a splendidly vital recreation of Georgian London.' SUNDAY TIMES"
