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.

"One of the most productive, imaginative and risk-taking of writers... It is a clever, sexually explicit, fast-moving, full blooded yarn" (Irish Times)
