The Black Prince
  • The Black Prince

  • 'Every artist is an unhappy lover. And unhappy lovers want to tell their story.'

    Ex-tax collector and author of two unpopular novels, Bradley Pearson wishes to devote his retirement to writing a masterpiece. But the doorbell and the phone keep ringing, and every ring brings with it an ex-wife, a friend in need, a sister in trouble or a young woman seeking a teacher, and so dusty, selfish Bradley is plunged into the muddles and mysteries which will end in his doom.

    Winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize 1973.
