Kingy in her garden, 'loved by the most handsome women in the world'; Maura the barmaid: 'I prefer the little, thin men'; Glisten the Mayor: 'It'll be take-over time and too late' - these and the many other characters illustrate the basic theme of the novel

Taken into service by Mary Sidney, she had fallen in love with her mistress and ultimately found herself betrayed by her.

Londoners, an elegy by Maureen Duffy( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the Londoners in this novel are outcasts - some are criminals in society's eyes. Most are descended from adventurers and immigrants. The worlds they inhabit - the bedsit; the cruisers' pub - lie cheek by jowl with the worlds of the affluent and successful - the smart restaurant, the House of Commons Committee room. Al, the narrator, is a Londoner born and bred, a writer living in a small room in West London. Most of the other residents in the cavernous Victorian house - and the friends and acquaintances Al meets in two local pubs, the bohemian and relaxed crowd at the Nevern and the slightly more ambiguous and dangerous crowd at the Knacker's - are Londoners by adoption, some temporary exiles, some permanent

"When a child is found dead among the charred remains of a pier fire, surrounded by the old-fashioned toys of the Greek god Dionysus and a ritualistic fire basket, Detective Inspector Hildreth calls in the local museum’s curator, Alex Kish, to help him decipher the mysterious symbolism. Soon afterwards an ancient Saxon amulet is stolen from the museum and the dead bodies of other young boys begin to turn up arranged as grotesque works of art with components of the gold amulet around their necks. The enigmatic Detective Inspector draws the curator into a strange web of ancient secrets, pagan ritualism, and the illegal trafficking of young boys."--Publisher description

The quest for a connection will take Betony Falk, a young Englishwoman, on a strange and disturbing journey through her family's past - and Europe's. Outside the deserted church of a picture-postcard English village, wild flowers nod silently by the graves of the Falk family; but a churchyard of ancestors may mean less than it seems.
