The Look of Love: The Life and Times of Paul Raymond, Soho’s King of Clubs
Join The Society Club as we welcome Paul Willetts, acclaimed biographer and author of The Look of Love: The Life and Times of Paul Raymond, Soho’s King of Clubs
“This fascinating study is as much a history of London’s square mile of vice as an account of one man’s life… Thoroughly researched and extremely well-written, this is an impressive book. Not since John Dickie’s Cosa Nostra have I read anything that exerts such hypnotic fascination for its sometimes repellent subject.” (The Observer)

Come to The Society Club for an Evening of Songs & Words with Richard Strange & Rupert Thomson
Thomson & Strange present two short sets of songs & readings. The first set based around Rupert Thomson’s award-winning memoir, “This Party’s Got to Stop”, with the second around Thomson’s highly acclaimed new novel, “Secrecy”. The multi-talented Richard Strange will perform a few covers inspired by the readings, and also some new songs of his own.
Rupert Thomson’s newest novel, Secrecy, is out now, and was recently hailed by The Independent as “breath-stopping tension on the edge of bliss or dread. No one else writes quite like this in Britain today.”
Books will be available for purchase on the night
