By Patrick Hamilton
West Kensington - gray sector of rot, and caretaking, and cat-slinking basements. West Kensington - drab asylum for the pushed and cast-off genteel!' Patrick Hamilton was once acutely wide awake that his 3rd novel (first released in 1928) used to be longer and 'much grimmer' than his prior and well-received productions. Twopence colored is the tale of 19-year-old Jackie Mortimer, who leaves Hove looking for a existence at the London level, in basic terms to turn into entangled in 'provincial theatre' and complicated affairs of the center with brothers, Richard and Charles Gissing. the radical, unavailable for a few years, is a gimlet-eyed portrait of the theatrical vocation, and entirely indicates Hamilton's celebrated reward for conjuring London - the 'vast, thronged, unknown, hooting, electric-lit, dark-rumbling city.
