  • The Black Prince


    The Black Prince is the story of London author Bradley Pearson's affair with rival and friend Arnold Baffin's daughter, Julian. The affair ends in disaster and in Arnold's murder at Bradley's hands. The narrative then progresses into a postscript in which the characters themselves reflect on the novel. The novel's name is an allusion to Hamlet, which is itself featured prominently during the course of the novel and discussed at length by the characters.
