When one of our favourite authors has a new book on the horizon, we make it our special mission to bring them to Mr B’s to tell you (and us) all about it. The marvellously macabre author and illustrator Edward Carey will join us this October to introduce an unforgettable new heroine – Madame Tussaud.
“Little” is the wondrous tale of Marie Tussaud, a tiny, odd-looking, ambitious orphan whose apprenticeship to an eccentric wax sculptor allows her to become an artistic sensation, tutor a princess, and save Marie Antoinette during childbirth. But beyond the palace walls, the city of Paris is roiling with the rage of revolution…
Here at Mr B’s, we fell in love with Edward’s wildly inventive, deliciously eerie stories when our Emma declared her devotion to the brave and slightly naive Clod, hero of “Heap House” (she even has a picture of him hanging on her wall at home)! In addition to winning pride of place on our favourites shelves (Mr B’s Amy is also a fan) and authoring a string of brilliant dark novels, Edward is also a playwright, whose work has been performed in Romania, Lithuania, England and Malaysia.
Now, at last, he’ll be gracing the humble stage of the bibliotherapy room. We can’t wait for you to meet him.
