Hangover Square revisited

In my search for the correct Hangover Square book cover, I actually stumbled across this Flickr, which shows a beautiful installation (fittingly) at the University of Brighton Gallery in 2010 that recreated some of the most iconic scenes from the book.

I was particularly encouraged by the installation’s dual focus – on the novel, but also encouraging onlookers to create their own narrative. A suitably split-personality for such a work. And great pants hanging up, there.
