Bestselling Author

at Uncommon Objects

speaking & signing






You are hereby invited to an uncommon evening with Austin author Edward Carey at Uncommon Objects, the delightful and dizzying local shop on South Congress, in celebration of the final book in Carey’s middle grade series, Lungdon. Join us for a presentation, book signing and cake to herald the completion of the Iremonger trilogy. Many wonders and marvels await us at Uncommon Objects! Be there! 


The dirt town of Foulsham has been destroyed, its ashes still smoldering. Darkness lies heavily over the city, the sun has not come up for days. Inside the houses throughout the capital, ordinary objects have begun to move. Strange new people run through the darkened streets. There are rumours of a terrible contagion. From the richest mansion to the poorest slum people have disappeared. The police have been instructed to carry arms. And rats, there are rats everywhere. Someone has stolen a certain plug. Someone is lighting a certain box of matches. All will come tumbling down. The Iremongers have come to London.


Edward Carey is the author and illustrator of two novels for adults, Observatory Mansions and Alva and Irva, which was longlisted for the IMPAC Literary Award. The Iremonger Trilogy is his first work for young readers. Born in England, he now lives with his wife, Elizabeth McCracken, and their two children in Austin, Texas, where he wrote the Iremonger Trilogy because he missed feeling cold and gloomy.

If you cannot attend the event and would like to order a signed copy of the book: order a signed book right over here. We ship all over the world!
