Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

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

Dull and uninspiring

This book is without interest. From the start it fails to engage. The characterisation and construction are poor and very amateurish.
