The Bexhill Missile Crisis • David Gee

224 pages • Paradise Press • February 26, 2014 [PB]
David Gee’s The Bexhill Missile Crisis is set at the start of Swinging ’60s, and looks at a crisis that explores how and why they started to swing.

“I do rather wonder if Gee is suggesting that sex and death somehow became inextricably linked in the 1960s as a result of the Crisis. It had certainly been so during the Second World War and there must have been a strong incentive to party like there was no tomorrow.”

The Dropout • David Gee

307 pages • Matador • September 09, 2012 [PB]

“David Gee’s tongue-in-cheek, if dark, social and sexual satire (a sort of cross between David Lodge and Tom Sharpe) leads us through a topsy-turvy world of sexual shenanigans and unconventional relationships.”
