Temple Drake

Temple Drake is the pen name of the writer Rupert Thomson, who has published eleven critically acclaimed novels and an award-winning memoir. NVK is the first book he has published under a pseudonym. NVK was an Amazon Best Book of the Month in November 2019. In the same month, it was selected by the BBC as one of their Ten Books to Read, and was described as "supercharged and genre-mixing". NVK was also chosen by Apple Books as one of its Top 10 Debut Novels of the Season. Apple Books said "Drake writes in a deliberately minimalist style that is as spare and elegant as Scandinavian furniture...Mysterious and bewitching..." while the Guardian called NVK "glitteringly baroque" and "urgently modern". https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/apr/08/nvk-by-temple-drake-review-dark-obsession-in-shanghai NVK is a surreal, left-field take on the vampire genre, and it is written with the velocity of a thriller, but as Rupert Thomson (aka Temple Drake) says: "My books are like jackdaws: they might steal from a genre, but they don't obey its rules".
