Book background
Book cover of Luda


A novel

Grant Morrison


Prior to and during the Olympic Games, vehicle access will be restricted in Paris, so orders may take longer than usual to process.

A drag queen becomes obsessed with her mysterious young rival who might be an occultist, or a murderer . . . or the greatest star of all

“Grant Morrison is a modern mythmaker.”
—Alex Segura, bestselling author of Secret Identity

“Morrison is a skilled word magician.”
Publishers Weekly

LA Times

“If such a thing as drag literature exists, the sort of book that Divine is reading in heaven, Luda belongs at the top of the heap.”

Luci LaBang is a star: for decades this flamboyant drag artist has cast a spell over screen and stage. Now she’s the leading lady in a smash hit pantomime.

When Luci’s co-star meets with a mysterious accident, a new ingenue shimmers onto the scene, and Luci is immediately smitten with the fantastically beautiful Luda and her sinister charm. 

Luda begs Luci to share the secrets of her stardom and to reveal the hidden tricks of her trade. For Luci LaBang is a mistress of the Glamour, an arcane discipline that draws on sex, drugs, and the occult for its trancelike, transformative effects. 

But as Luci tutors her young protégée, their fellow actors and crew members begin meeting with untimely ends. Now Luci wonders if Luda has mastered the Glamour all too well.

What follows is an intoxicating descent into the demimonde of Gasglow, a fantastical city of dreams, and into the nightmarish heart of Luda herself: a femme fatale, a phenomenon, a monster, and, perhaps, the brightest star of them all.
