Trevor Hoyle - Rule Of Night

Long-lost and highly sought after gritty British novel by acclaimed author back in print

If the Sixties had been swinging, the Seventies were the hangover - darker, nastier, uglier - especially if you lived on a council estate in the north of England.

Rule of Night was first published in 1975 and has since become a cult classic. It pre-dates the current vogue for "hard men" and "football hoolie" books by 25 years.

It is, however, much more than this...

Trevor Hoyle creates a chillingly detailed world, where teenagers prowl rainy flurorescent-lit streets, the backdrop provided by Ford Cortinas, Player No 6, the factory and the relentless struggle to maintain hope on a north of England council estate.

Trevor Hoyle, who has since been published by John Calder (home to Samuel Beckett and William S. Burroughs), has added a fascinating afterword to his original book which has been out of print and highly sought after for many years.
