From the Author

Q & A with Mark Dawson

Q: Can you tell us a little about this book?

Mark: I've written a couple of novels in the Soho Noir series - THE IMPOSTERand THE BLACK MILE - and I wanted to write something quick and fun as an introduction to the longer books. This is a short story that examinesthe father of one of the main characters in THE IMPOSTER, plus hisbrother (a key character in the book). We go all the way back to 1920,just after the end of the Great War, and experience what it was like for soldiers returning home after fighting. They didn't always get a warmwelcome.

Q: How do you research the period?

M: A lot ofreading of contemporary fiction for the language and then trips to thenewspaper archive to get a sense of the atmosphere of the time. That'sone of the most enjoyable aspects of writing a book like this.Authenticity is really important to me; if you sound a bum note, areader with knowledge of your period will be immediately turned off. Itry and avoid that at all costs.

Q: Have you lived in London?

M: I have. I spent a decade there between my 20s and 30s and it's a citywith a lot of stories to tell. The cobbled streets and gas lamps thatfeature in this book can still be found; and some of the lamps still run on gas, even to this day. It's intoxicating for a writer with aninterest in that era.
