»The Angel and the Cuckoo (1967) is Kersh’s penultimate novel and one of his best. It was praised by Claire Tomalin for the »baroque Vistavision« style of a narrative that stretches from Edwardian Soho to 1950s Brighton. It is wonderfully overwrought, full of ludicrous digressions, ripe anecdotes, louche sex and booze.«

David Collard

Gerald Kersh was astonishingly prolific, hammering out twenty novels, twenty collections of short stories and thousands of articles in different publications, hacking pseudonymously as Piers England, Waldo Kellar, Mr Chickery, Joe Twist, George Munday, and others, David Collard says. He reviews the (re)published books Night and the City, Nightshade and Damnations (Stories), The Angel and the Cuckoo and Fowlers End by Kersh. His worth reading essay at The Times Literary Supplement.
