Description

Fireship Press brings you: WYNFIELD'S KINGDOM by Marina Julia Neary

A TALE OF THE LONDON SLUMS.

Welcome to 1830s Bermondsey, London’s most notorious slum, a land of gang wars, freak shows, and home to every depravity known to man.

Dr. Thomas Grant, a disgraced physician, adopts Wynfield, a ten-year old thief savagely battered by a gang leader for insubordination. The boy grows up to be a slender, idealistic opium addict who worships Victor Hugo. By day he steals and resells guns from a weapons factory. By night he amuses filthy crowds with his adolescent girlfriend—a fragile witch with wolfish eyes.

Wynfield senses that he has a purpose outside of his rat-infested kingdom; but he never guesses that he had been selected at birth to topple the British aristocracy.

PRAISE FOR WYNFIELD’S KINGDOM

The spirits of Charles Dickens and Victor Hugo haunt this darkly compelling novel of the mid-Victorian underworld. Exhaustively researched, ambitious in scope and rich in period detail, Wynfield’s Kingdom is a harrowing tale of wretched poverty and desperate survival, of monstrous child abuse and atrocious acts committed in the name of science. Diana the wild robber maiden and her bandit lover Wynfield are larger than life anti-heroes destined to linger long in the reader’s imagination.

Eileen Kernaghan

Author of Wild Talent:

A Novel of the Supernatural

———————————————————————————-

Marina Neary writes with unbelievable power, yet never loses her sense of emotional insight. The result is a book with superb depth. On almost every page you don’t know whether to laugh at the incongruity or cry at the tragedy, for Neary will give you cause for both. Wynfield’s Kingdom is truly an extraordinary first novel.

Tom Grundner

Author of the Sir Sidney Smith
