About this title


Maddie is fifteen and overweight. She hasn't left the house for thirteen years, since her grandfather disappeared. Burying her memories, Maddie can't face her deepest fears. Until her brother's life is in danger - and she must leave her familiar prison behind, or lose him for good..."If Royston Vasey had had a public library it might have resembled the one in Thomas Bloor's The Memory Prisoner...Bloor never wastes a word communicating his nightmare, contriving all at once to be moving, alarming and funny. It takes a while to adjust to the extreme oddity of this short novel as there is nothing to compare it with. Sooner or later someone is going to mention Kafka, but I will eschew the K word except to remark that what most people forget about Kafka is his lethal matter-of-factness." Jan Mark, TES
