Description

'One of the most productive, imaginative and risk-taking of writers...It is a clever, sexually explicit, fast-moving, full blooded yarn' - "Irish Times". "A Dead Man in Deptford" re-imagines the riotous life and suspicious death of Christopher Marlowe. Poet, lover and spy, Marlowe must negotiate the pressures placed upon him by theatre, Queen and country. Burgess brings this dazzling figure to life and pungently evokes Elizabethan England.
