A History of Jack Kahane and the Obelisk Press
Neil Pearson is a television, stage and film actor. Film and tv credits include Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and the award winning comedy Drop the Dead Donkey. This is his first book.
... Most are very interesting. I felt myself almost guilty enjoying this book because so much of it was imbued with sadness. ... At £25 this is good value and an enjoyable read

Neil Pearson’s labour of scholarly love is a thought-provoking book.
John Sutherland Mail on Sunday
Pearson is … as adroit a writer as he is watchable an actor. Everyone with an interest in literary history will enjoy Pearson's narrative.
Nicholas Clee The Guardian
Obelisk, in Pearson’s skilled hands, is actually an entertaining and immensely readable book in its own right, full of good colour illustrations and excellent value for money. The literary world owes a lot to Kahane and the Obelisk Press, and to Pearson’s lively account of their adventurous publishing life.
