Helen Phillips reads from The Beautiful Bureaucrat

Posted 26th Apr 2017

‘Funny, sad, scary and beautiful. I love it’ Ursula K. Le Guin

Helen Phillips’ sublime and chilling The Beautiful Bureaucrat is out now.

Both chilling and poignant, The Beautiful Bureaucrat is a novel of rare restraint and imagination. Helen Phillips calls to mind the exuberant strangeness of Haruki Murakami, and the fairytales of Angela Carter as she twists the world we know and shows it back to us full of meaning and wonder – luminous and new.
