London re-calling

May 27th, 2016

After B.C. novelists John Gray and Ian Weir tried setting dark, suspense novels set in 19th century London, Steven Price has followed suit with a highly touted second novel edited by Ellen Seligman, partially set in London during the 1880s. Due in August, By Gaslight (Penguin Random House 2016) involves murder and mayhem with detective William Pinkerton embroiled in mysteries that lead the reader to the battlefields of the U.S. Civil War and the diamond mines of South Africa in the 1890s. Steven Price is married to novelist Esi Edugyan. He was instrumental in the process that resulted in her second novel, Half-Blood Blues, being published in Canada by Thomas Allen, his publisher. Half-Blood Blues soon afterwards won the Giller Prize in 2011. 9780771069239
