New Book: Liggers and Dreamers

Published by


Salut salut! Delighted to say my short stories, originally published on The International Times website, are now a book.

Liggers and Dreamers, Josie Demuth, Thin Man Press

The Liggers of Cork Street are dismayed when they discover the existence of ‘the list’ warning London’s elite gallerists and art dealers about their freeloading antics at private views…


What they say about Liggers & Dreamers

“This year’s funniest adventure… A hilarious romp through the Art World.”

 Sophie Parkin, novelist and author of ‘The Colony Room’

“Josie Demuth’s ‘Liggers and Dreamers’ are picaresque, outrageous characters… They display the idler’s zest for living and add to the gaiety of nations. As befits a portrait of an aesthetic dystopia, ‘Liggers and Dreamers’ is beautifully written.”

Heathcote Williams, author ‘Whale Nation’, ‘Autogeddon’, ‘Royal Babylon’ et al

Josie Demuth’s new book is innovative with no time for baloney…  A very tongue in cheek, tickling and fiercely observed manuscript on an extraordinary scale about the liggers and dreamers of the London art world.  A well written story on how they make their way through London’s elite art scene … Liggers & Dreamers is a fascinating work of creative writing by someone with tremendous imagination”

Bunmi Akpata-Ohohe, Rooms Magazine, September 2015

“Josie Demuth has written a cracking social commentary classic for our times.”

Claire Palmer, Editor, International Times

“Ms Demth’s novella makes some thoughtful points, amid lots of broad satire, in-jokes and slapstick,” Dickon Edwards, Blogger, The Diary At The Centre Of The Earth, September 2015

“Among the champagne bubbles, the often cruel world of contemporary art is gently and hilariously satirized in ‘Liggers & Dreamers’… brilliantly observed with a deft simplicity of style.”

Geraldine Beigbeder, novelist and international art dealer
