All the Devils are Here
-- Throws new light on the myths and secrets of the south coast of England
In this study of East Kent, David Seabrook combines his observations of the towns' cultural and political landscapes with their literary associations. In Margate and Westgate, Seabrook detects the desperate merriment of T. S.
