Newly released: The Eleven Associates of Alma-Marceau

The first publication from Anomie Special Projects, the third imprint of Anomie Publishing, ‘The Eleven Associates of Alma-Marceau’ is an art-themed adventure by The Old School Writers Circle – the debut novel by a group of friends who met at school some thirty years ago. The story follows a summer in the life of Adam King, a promising young British art student undertaking an internship at a contemporary art museum in Paris. A strange revelation in front of Leonardo’s Mona Lisa during an evening out with an unusual group of young people who are looking to change the world proves not only to be the cause of intense debate, but also a turning point in a series of interconnected events in which Adam finds himself caught up in much more than his own coming-of-age.
