Hangover Square 1941

by Patrick Hamilton

Set in 1939 on the brink of war, Hangover Square depicts the sleazy lifestyle of degenerate unemployed poor rich. A psychological thriller entering the mind of a murderer. Infatuated by Netta a promiscuous starlet he treads the borders of insanity. By the time I had finished reading this book I was thoroughly depressed. But it is well written and demands a continuous read. Well I could add that either you will fall asleep reading it because it evokes such a dreary mindset though it is humourous at times, or you will become obsessed and feel compelled to read on to the end of what is quite a slim volume.
