The Society are delighted to announce that the new edition of Angel Pavement is now available.
Angel Pavement is one of Priestley’s finest novels. Available from www.gnbooks.co.uk and all booksellers nationwide.
Tucked away in the City of London, lies a dingy, almost forgotten side street known as Angel Pavement. Here can be found the headquarters of Twigg & Dersingham, suppliers of veneers and inlays to the furniture trade. Business is slow and the staff struggle against a tide of growing competition, rising prices and recession. Into their midst descends the mysterious and charming Mr Golspie and the promise of a brighter future. Life will never be the same again for all those concerned with the firm.
Angel Pavement is one of the great London novels: a vivid evocation of the sprawling and crowded pre-war metropolis. It is also a brilliant examination of what happens to a small group of office staff when the destructive force of a rapacious financial predator is unleashed among them.
A novel very much for our own time.
‘The whole fabric of the few lives, are opened up to us with a warm and generous assiduity that is entirely convincing… magnificent.’ The Times
