Patrick Langley

I am a writer and editor based in London. My first novel, Arkady, is published by Fitzcarraldo Editions 2018.

It was reviewed here, here, here, and elsewhere.

You can purchase a copy here.


‘Thick with smoky atmosphere and beautifully controlled – this is a vivid and very fine debut.’
— Kevin Barry, author of City of Bohane

‘Patrick Langley’s Arkady is a strange trip – luminescent, jagged and beautiful. A debut novel that twists, compels, descends and soars. I highly recommend it.’
— Jenni Fagan, author of The Panopticon

‘A gorgeous novel… A livid and visionary brotherly love story set among our ruins. I loved it.’
— Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers


I’m an editor at Art Agenda and a contributing editor at The White Review.
