Description
Originally published in 1966, just after the premiere of his runaway stage success Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Tom Stoppard's only novel is a dazzling fantasy set in modern London. The cast includes a penniless, dandified Malquist with a liveried coach, his Boswellian biographer Moon (who frantically scribbles as a bomb ticks in his pocket), a couple of cowboys, a lion who's banned from the Ritz, an Irishman on a donkey claiming to be the Risen Christ, and three irresistible women.

"A highly imaginative and theatrical black comedy, with a cunningly contrived denouement whose absurdity is chillingly logical."Glasgow Herald

"Lord Malquist and Mr Moon takes place in a dream-London where everything is seen through a haze of despair, and cowboys and a coach-and-pair and a pet lion wander with innumerable others through the plot, giving it a kind of child-like surrealism. It manages to be sad without being sentimental, and to give its fantasies a wit and exactness that make them fruitful and rewarding."Sunday Telegraph (London)
