The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels by Janice Hallett – Part Three
We discuss chapters 6-8 of Janice Hallett‘s bizarre media-meta-fiction ‘Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels’. Amanda Bailey’s toying with Oliver Menzies has taken the investigation to a new extreme. Oliver’s delusions are pushing him to action, and as Amanda approaches the actual truth, he fabricates a whole new one, and takes action. How do the disparate pieces of both fact and fiction collide in the ominous night that became the Alperton Angels suicide? Only a few players know all, and they will not let their work be undone so lightly.
We’re also joined by Janice herself to talk a bit about the construction of the novel, the inspiration behind the characters, and how we view all-powerful entities. Also check out Janice’s article on True Crime writers in The Guardian.
