Steve Foote: Mervyn Peake: Son of Sark
Steve Foote founded Blue Ormer to publish books about the Channel Islands. In his latest publication, he explores Mervyn Peake’s connections with the island of Sark. Best known for the Gormenghast trilogy, Peake is widely considered to be one of the 20th century’s most original and innovative novelists, poets and artists. He lived in Sark during the 1930s and 40s where he drew inspiration from the island’s tranquillity and unique charms. Mervyn Peake: Son of Sark is intended as a guide to Sark for those familiar with the work of Mervyn Peake, and an introduction to Peake’s work for those familiar with the island.
