An hour with author Alex Pheby discussing his acclaimed novels Playthings and Lucia and featuring exclusive early readings from his forthcoming fantasy masterwork, Mordew

 

Alex Pheby is, according to The Guardian, “a writer possessed of unusual – indeed, extraordinary – powers.”

 

His most recent novel Lucia won the Republic Of Consciousness Prize (alongside Murmur by Will Eaves) and was described as “startlingly original” in the Times Literary Supplement. Before that, Playthings was shortlisted for the Wellcome Prize, described in the Literary Review as ‘arguably the best neuronovel ever written” and in the New York Times as ‘marvellously surprising and vivid, something new…’  His forthcoming novel Mordew is hotly anticipated – and again, entirely different. He’ll be discussing this growing body of work alongside one of his editors at Galley Beggar Press, Sam Jordison, and giving an exclusive preview of the extraordinary Mordew.
