Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Philip Ridley is a singular writer, a prolific polymath, probably a genius, and the creator of some of the most peculiar, grotesque and compelling British plays (and films) of the last several years" (Time Out)

Author of the nightmarish The Pitchfork Disney, the multi-award winning The Fastest Clock in the Universe and winner of the Evening Standard Most Promising Newcomer to British Film Award for his screenplay The Krays, Philip Ridley is back with Ghost From a Perfect Place, a scorchingly nasty blend of comedy, spectacle and terror where a monster from the past meets the monsters of the present.

Back in the sixties, Travis Flood and his gang terrorised Bethnal Green. Now, after an absence of 25 years, Travis returns and meets Rio, whose haunting beauty leads him to confront a story that bears no relation to his own distorted memory. And then there's the Cheerleaders…a present-day gang, more vicious and terrifying that anything Travis led in the past.

About the Author

Philip Ridley was born in the East End of London. His plays include The Pitchfork Disney, The Fastest Clock in the Universe, Ghost from a Perfect Place, Vincent River and Krindlekrax (2002)
