The Picture of Contented New Wealth | Tariq Goddard

We’re delighted to launch Repeater’s new range of audiobooks, fronted by The Picture of Contented New Wealth by our Publisher, Tariq Goddard, ten year after it won Gold in the Independent Publishers Awards for Horror Writing.

The Picture of Contented New Wealth is a gothic tragedy set in the 1980s, bringing proper characterization and a literary sensibility to the traditional horror story. Its mix of generic elements and mystical realism deal with the irreducibility of evil and its successful normalization in to our daily and dominant reality.

All Repeater audiobook are recorded and owned by us ourselves, so whilst they are accessible on Amazon (amongst many other audiobook providers) our readers and listeners will still be helping us despite buying through their platform.

The book, which was described by Class War as “ shit, but as in shit scary”, and The Daily Mail as “an ingenious take on the Gothic Novel that forsakes cheap thrills in favour of something far more interesting – a lucid exploration of good and evil and the Meaning of faith”, is still available on Zer0 Books, our former company.

The audiobook of The Picture of Contented New Wealth – which The Quietus recently described as: “Read convincingly by [an] urbane gent who sounds like he may have a favourite axe” – can be purchased on Audible, Apple Books, Audiobooks Now, Blackstone, Bolinda, Findaway, Gardners, Hummingbird DM, Kobo, Libro.FM, Overdrive and Simply Audiobooks.
