The geography-warping invasion that took over London has been defeated, but thousands of Londoners are missing...

Anna is doing her best: there are plenty of parentless teenagers living alone in the ruins of Dream London, and she’s done a good job of keeping the bad thoughts away so far.

But then a tall, dark stranger with eyes like a fly enters her life. He claims to know where the missing people of London have ended up. He might even know the location of Anna's missing parents. Anna can find them, but to do that she will have to let go of what little normality she has and journey into the heart of Dream Paris, where the revolution never ended...

Praise for Dream London

‘An unclassifiable gem… shares the surreal, absurdist whimsy of Alice in Wonderland, and Chesterton’s The Man Who Was Thursday.’
-The Guardian

‘As strange and unclassifiable a novel as it’s possible to imagine, and a marvellous achievement.’
-Financial Times
