“Whether Antwerp is a literate thriller or thrilling literature or—most likely—a combination of both, among other things it’s an irresistible meditation on the movies and all the memories and madness they evoke and inspire. Nicholas Royle is a novelist for our time.”—Steve Erickson
An independent US director, Johnny Vos, is making a low-budget biopic about the Belgian surrealist artist Paul Delvaux. When two prostitutes end up murdered, English film critic Frank Warner, in town to interview Vos, turns investigative journalist and becomes personally involved when his own girlfriend goes missing.
Macabre and erotic, Antwerp is an exceptional literary thriller.
Nicholas Royle was born in 1963 in Manchester, England, where he now lives. He is the author of four novels, including The Director’s Cut.
