An inspiring, original, compelling and absorbing tale which starts with David Bramwell inheriting a moustache from his eccentric Great Aunt Sylvia.

'The Haunted Moustache' is an endearing combination of memoir, mysticism, mystery, social history, and Brighton's recent cultural history (c1990s). If some or all of that ticks your boxes then get your mitts on a copy of 'The Haunted Moustache' ASAP.

I am a recent convert to the work of Dr David Bramwell and have been rapidly getting up to speed with h

Enter The Haunted Moustache: One of the most entertaining partially true memoirs I’ve ever stumbled upon. While it sits at a short 191 pages, I actually spent more time reading this book than I do for one much longer. Filled with photographs and news articles, The Haunted Moustache offers more visual stimulation than your typical novel. Written as a tour through author David Bramwell’s time in the gorgeous seaside town of Brighton the story takes the reader through the more esoteric side of vari ...more

This is undoubtedly my book of 2017.,though it only crept in at the end of the year. Part journal,part scrapbook, part high comedy, part occult quest for enlightenment and part coming of age story, I simply cannot recommend it enough. It is eccentric, touching and utterly original. Hunt it down and enjoy it.
