Murray Lachlan Young is a poet whose work echoes the great rhymers Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, and Gilbert and Sullivan, along with more alternative influences such as Grandmaster Flash, Tom Waits and Ian Drury.
Currently the poet in residence on BBC 6 Music, his latest book is a modern ballad in verse form, with a child protagonist. Crispin inherits a ghostly and ghastly stately pile, threatened by a curse and menaced by a demonic butler.
A humorous satire that continues Young’s commentary on decadence in our age with gothic illustrations by Julie Verhoeven.
