Twopence Coloured

Patrick Hamilton


West Kensington - gray zone of rot, and caretaking, and cat-slinking basements. West Kensington - drab asylum for the pushed and cast-off genteel!' Patrick Hamilton was once acutely wide awake that his 3rd novel (first released in 1928) used to be longer and 'much grimmer' than his prior and well-received productions. Twopence colored is the tale of 19-year-old Jackie Mortimer, who leaves Hove looking for a existence at the London level, simply to develop into entangled in 'provincial theatre' and intricate affairs of the center with brothers, Richard and Charles Gissing. the unconventional, unavailable for a few years, is a gimlet-eyed portrait of the theatrical vocation, and entirely indicates Hamilton's celebrated present for conjuring London - the 'vast, thronged, unknown, hooting, electric-lit, dark-rumbling city.
