Ed Bingham's debut novel Broadlake

31 May 2023
Written by Tara Biddle

Ed's debute novel Broadlake is being published today, 31 May 2023, by Thinkwell Books, UK. 


Bingham’s debut novel is a tragicomic exploration of family, friendship, love and loss, written in rhyming prose. It is also a murder mystery, forging a unique literary detective story. 

The deceased narrator has one day left to pinpoint the origins of his downfall. Yet why is he in such a rush and did his demise stem from his childhood, his career, his friends or his doomed relationships? Will he find the answer before it is too late and how will his account affect the outcome of the murder investigation? 

Bingham’s mastery of the long poem has been compared to TS Eliot, BS Johnson and Allen Ginsberg, with author Ann Chettle describing it as ‘a masterpiece in originality, creativity and storytelling’, novelist David Stephens, ‘an ingenious murder mystery’, and ghostwriter Katy Weitz, ‘a dizzying feat of imagination and erudition’.
