Dead Cat with Firelighter
By Frances Day
Published by Solidus
Category Contemporary black comedy
A novel set amid the extreme worlds of contemporary art and celebrity. Inhabiting both landscapes are the sinister Vaughan Darke, classical aesthete and hit-man, and his modernist counterpart, Hayden Curtis. How can an artist of no talent be raised to cult status, and an also-ran actress achieve immortality? And why is a film starâ€™s husband only one of the people trying to kill her?
Frances Day has written articles for newspapers, BBC Radio and several plays and monologues. This is her first novel.
A wonderful escape into a world of art, sex and power. A good holiday read.â€™ Hugh Tarren
