Philippa Stockley 2:30pm
Black Lily

Philippa Stockley’s third novel, Black Lily, is set in murky and merciless late 17th-century London.  Mixed-race Zenobia struggles for independence in this male-led world of chancers and developers, joining forces with black immigrant and former slave, Lily. This is a fast, evocative mystery novel lit by black humour. A local, Stockley loves East London’s murk and history and she brings the city vividly to life with pungent milieux ranging from plague pits to prisons to pastry kitchens.
