-- 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. Eliot's The Waste Land; in Rochester and Chatham, he senses the ghosts of Dickens and the drug fantasies of Thomas De Quincey; and in Broadstairs, he uncovers a weird network involving Lord Curzon, a Nazi con man, and Audrey Hepburn's father.
