About this title

Synopsis:

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.
