About this title

Synopsis:

Toby Hawk is a solitary boy in a family of Amazons. His mother, only fifteen years older than him, is a painter on the brink of commercial success. His great-aunt is a wealthy textile designer; her partner, Liberty, a barrister. Meanwhile, eighteen-year-old Toby's world remains a small, closed round of school, domesticity and surfing the Net at night. But everything changes when his mother takes up with a fascinating but enigmatic scientist, Roehm. Patricia Duncker's gripping novel is a disturbing tale of Oedipal passion. It is also an eerie psychological ghost story in the European tradition, whose sources - Freud, Faust and Frankenstein - haunt the pages.

About the Author:

Patricia Duncker is the author of three novels, Hallucinating Foucault (1996), James Miranda Barry (1999), and The Deadly Space Between (2002), and a collection of short fiction, Monsieur Shoushana's Lemon Trees (1997), all available from Picador. She has also published a collection of essays on writing and contemporary literature, Writing on the Wall (2002). She is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia.
