Miracle Enough

Many readers of this blog will remember the enjoyable and spirited Mervyn Peake Conference held in 2011 at Chichester University and run in association with the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy to mark the centenary of Mervyn Peake's birth.

As a result of the energy of those involved, in particular of Peter Winnington, the majority of the papers from the conference have now been edited, assembled into book form, and published under the title "Miracle Enough". The book is heavily illustrated and there is a very warm and informative introduction by Professor William Gray, the main organiser of the conference. The book is dedicated to Sebastian Peake who, of course, worked in so many ways to promote the work of his father but who died while the book was in production.

There is more information about the book on the Cambridge Scholars website, and some sample pages available on the site if you open the "Sample pdf" at the bottom of the page.
