9780099755111: The Cement Garden

Four children, living alone with their mother, decide not to inform the authorities when she dies. Instead they take her down into the cellar and bury her in cement and for the next days, weeks and months live far away from normal conventions.

From the Inside Flap:

In this tour de force of psychological unease--now a major motion picture starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Sinead Cusack--McEwan excavates the ruins of childhood and uncovers things that most adults have spent a lifetime forgetting--or denying. "Possesses the suspense and chilling impact of Lord of the Flies."--Washington Post Book World.
