With The Song Of The Flea (1948) Gerald Kersh revisited the demi-monde of his famous Night And The City; but this novel concerns a writer, striving doggedly to make his living.
‘A remarkable novel… with this book Mr Kersh has taken a big step forward.’ Sunday Times
‘[Kersh] has a remarkable talent… he is one of the comparatively few living novelists in this country who write with energy and originality and whose ideas are not drawn from a residuum of novels that have been written before… [The Song of the Flea] is the story of John Pym, a young man trying to earn his living as a writer… Mr Kersh draws on his picturesque and convincing knowledge of human vileness in a manner which is both entertaining and instructive.’ Times Literary Supplement.
