About the Author


Alex Pheby’s second novel, Playthings, was shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize; his third, Lucia, about the tragic life of James Joyce’s daughter, was the joint winner of 2018’s Republic of Consciousness Prize. Mordew is his fourth novel. Born in Essex, he grew up in Worcester, and now teaches at the University of Greenwich in London.

Praise For…


“A treat. ... The world of Alex Pheby’s fourth novel is dizzying... a beguiling splicing of Dickensian social satire and rackety steampunk fantasy. Written with combustible verve.” —The Spectator

“Beautifully rendered...Immersive, tense, full of action.” —Irish Times

“Weird and wonderful, bleak and beautiful...[Mordew] is an extraordinarily vivid piece of world-building.” —Sunday Express

“Think Great Expectations meets Gormenghast, with a cliffhanger ending that hints at a dynamic sequel.” —Literary Review
