In the Mirror, a Monster
by Marten Weber

Published exclusively throughout Europe by Dog Horn Publishing.

Tim and Tim have been running a gay B&B in Edinburgh for three decades. Their relationship is characterised by kind love and deep trust. A handful of long-term lodgers give their old house a lively character.

Into this B&B come two young men from Slovakia. Everybody agrees that they must be a couple. They cuddle and even kiss without shame.

But there is something strange about them.

Before long, Tim and the nosy lodgers are uncovering a secret nobody could have expected. A secret which begins to affect everyone, even Tim and Tim, who must come to realise the deception at the very heart of their own love.

In the end not a single stone of the old B&B is left in its original place.

In the Mirror, a Monster is a masterpiece of modern storytelling. Marten Weber‘s style is vivid, with a keen ear for regional voices, and at times has the magical ability to render, with clear compassion the human frailty behind individual actions and words.

Author Marten Weber is in the UK during December for a special tour. You can meet him at Manor House in Edinburgh (15th December), Empire in Leeds (17th December), Taurus in Manchester (18th December) and Woolfson & Tay in London (20th December).
