'...Richard J. Hand and Micheal Wilson, who have previously written on the French Grand Guignol for this excellent series from the University of Exeter Press, now turn to the English variant...' `...London's Grand Guignol is a fine introduction to a neglected corner of the twentieth-century arts world.' (TLS, 18. 04. 08) "Altogether this is a well-researched book on a fascinating piece of theatre history."' (Year's Work in English Studies, vol. 89, no. 1, 2010) `...London's Grand Guignol allows Hand and Wilson to make a persuasive case for Grand Guignol's place not only in modern theatre history, but also in the film history of thrillers and horror films. This book will be useful as a hands-on theatre history and practice text for programs where one might imagine offering students an opportunity to apply their creativity to the same challenges Jose Levy faced.' (Theatre Survey, Vol 50/2, November 2009) 'Altogether this is a well-researched book on a fascinating piece of theatre history.' (Year's Work in English Studies, vol. 89, no. 1, 2010)
