Seventh Book: Matt Houlbrook’s Prince of Tricksters

The next book for the #storypast online discussion will be Matt Houlbrook’s Prince of Tricksters, described by the Times Higher Education as ‘an intriguing account not only of a con man, but of the social milieu that enabled him to thrive’.

Houlbrook’s book combines meticulous research with imaginative and creative techniques, shifting from narrative prose into more unusual forms of writing, such as an invented screenplay, and a letter to the unstable and unknowable (anti)hero of the book. It’s a book that will raise lots of questions for discussion, and will be of great interest to many regular #storypast participants.

Join us on Thursday 27th April 3-4pm to discuss the book on Twitter at the #storypast hashtag.
