A marvelous tour de force that engages as it entertains. Published by Thriftbooks. Darkly beautiful, inventive, compelling, deeply moving and mesmerizing on so many levels. James is more than an artist of the word, he is an emancipator of the human heart. I honestly have not been so moved by a book for a very long time. I'm still thinking about "shallow grave" weeks after reading it. One of the best books I've ever read.
James Purdy is one of the best writers in America today, an artist as well as a superb craftsman. With his command of classical American colloquial speech and his almost scientific grasp of the horrors that lurk just beneath the surface of civilized behavior, Purdy is a master of a form of fiction that demands total suspension of disbelief and participation in the ritual bloodletting of society as a whole.
In other words, a very impressive book’ – Publishers Weekly. Mr Purdy writes like an angel, with accuracy, wit and freshness, but a fallen angel, versed in the sinful ways of men’ – The Times.

No James Purdy novel has dazzled contemporary writers more than this haunting tale of unrequited love in an indifferent world. A seedy depression-era boarding house in Chicago plays host to "a game of emotional chairs" (The Guardian) in a novel initially condemned for its frank depiction of abortion, homosexuality, and life on the margins of American society.

The book, said Purdy, was about how we rip out the beautiful things in us so we’ll be acceptable to society. The burial ceremony will take place at 2pm on Wednesday 13 March. Narrow Rooms and In A Shallow Grave have just been republished by Valancourt Books. Dismissed by the New York Times as a homosexual novel, the book was also denounced by the writer Nelson Algren as a fifth-rate avant-garde soap opera prayer and faggotry. He said being published was like throwing a party and having all these wicked people come and vomit all over the house. Peter Owen Books plans to publish four of Purdy’s later works in November.
