9780099283263: Mr Pye

Equipped with love, Mr Harold Pye lands on the island of Sark, his mission to convert the islanders into a crusading force for the undiluted goodness that he feels within. The extraordinary inhabitants of the island range from the formidable Miss George in her purple busby to the wanton, raven-haired Tintagieu, 'five foot three inches of sex'. Mr Pye, however, is prone to excess and in the increasingly personalised struggle between good and evil, excess is very nearly his downfall.

Mervyn Peake was born in 1911. He is perhaps most famous for the 'Gormenghast' trilogy which were published between 1946 and 1959?Titus Groan, Gormenghast and Titus Alone. He has also written a book for children, Captain Slaughterboard Drops Anchor and several volumes of poetry. He was also a gifted book illustrator. He died in 1968.

Product Description:

Dapper and smiling, Mr. Pye comes to the island of Sark with a mission--to conquer evil.

He immediately sets about changing everyone he meets, but is unfortunately prone to excess. When the struggle between good and evil becomes embarrassingly personal, Mr. Pye is forced to embark on a campaign of unparalleled sin.

Mervyn Peake, author of the internationally acclaimed Gormenghast novels, has created an extraordinarily imaginative story in Mr. Pye, his last novel and crowning achievement. In both the text and his own delightful illustrations, the author turns a moral battle into a hilarious and fantastical adventure.
