Dark, Then Light

Xan Brooks, named as one of the Observer’s New Faces of Fiction 2017, presents an assured debut, The Clocks in This House All Tell Different Times, a social-realist fairytale that explores the dark underbelly of 1920s Britain. Darting from the hidden pockets of Epping Forest to a debauched mansion north of London, Brooks's novel spotlights a society in crisis, reeling from the effects of the First World War and staggering blindly into a fierce, bright modern age. Chaired by Diana Hope.
