On Saturday 4th June, author, filmmaker and journalist, David Whitehouse spent the entire day in a Feather & Black bed outside Foyle’s bookshop, Southbank Centre, to promote his debut novel Bed.
We were honoured that David had chosen our beautiful Henrietta upholstered bed in vibrant royal blue velvet fabric to begin spreading the word about his ‘To Hell with Prize 2010’ prize winning novel. He spent the day, working, writing, reading and talking to passersby.
Bed is a coming-of-age novel about a man with huge prospects who, one day, goes to bed and decides to never get out again.
‘The best new novel I’ve read in ages.’- Guardian
‘Staggering, inventive and heartbreakingly beautiful’ – Esquire
