Book Launch - Clark Gable and His Plastic Duck

Brunel Writers & Hillingdon Literary Festival presents...


​An Online Book Launch for Professor Philip Tew's new novel:​ Clark Gable and His Plastic Duck

1991, an alternative Britain you won't remember—.
Prime Minister, Alan Clark, appoints Enoch Powell and Margaret Thatcher, a pariah since losing the Falklands in 1982, to key cabinet posts, their authoritarianism opposed by militaristic domestic groups.
Bill Pugh laments past betrayals, a dead-end job and his doomed relationship. Entangled by a shadowy world of a privatized security apparatus and its violent antagonists, Bill’s life seems blighted. Who to trust: a louche and erratic school-friend; a strangely familiar new lover; or, a government thug closely resembling a 1930s film-star?
In this world of love, greed and brutality, new digital technologies confuse Bill: power resides in both the pixelated screen and the barrel of a gun. Craving salvation, he traverses memories and a most bewildering present.
