"At his best Jeffreys writes memorable, perturbating prose with an overwhelming sense of menace. The stories stay with the reader, touching something in the psyche that is both troubling and intriguing." Bristol Review of Books.

Book Cover: Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake
I'm an avid collector of old, illustrated book covers and this is one of my favourites. I love this illustration where we see Lady Groan's white cats swarming over a statue in the foreground, then in the distance - recognisable by the various physical attributes Peake attributed to them - we glimpse Fuschia, Flay, Nannie Slagg and baby Titus himself (in Nannie Slagg's arms).
Sadly since I no longer have the book this cover was attached to I don't know the publication date or the name of the cover artist.
