Résumé

All Nell's life, Olive Owen has lived next door but one. And all her life, Nell has hated her. Even at school Olive had sparkled indecently, turning heads. Nell has a son, her pleasure and her shame, though now she lives alone. Nell is sharp in all the places Olive is round. When Wolfe moves into the house in between them, their quiet street is transformed. A lonely, spirited eight-year-old boy, he knocks on their doors at Halloween and invites them to his bonfire party.
As the fireworks flare, he finds himself in the middle of an ancient conflict, grudges bared and burning with a fury he could never have imagined.'A perfect, black little tale' Observer

Biographie de Lesley Glaister

Novelist Lesley Glaister was born in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England. She grew up in Suffolk, moving to Sheffield with her first husband, where she took a degree with the Open University. She was 'discovered' by the novelist Hilary Mantel when she attended a course given by the Arvon Foundation in 1989. Mantel was so impressed by her writing that she recommended her to a literary agent. Lesley Glaister's first novel, Honour Thy Father, won both a Somerset Maugham Award and a Betty Trask Award.
Her other novels include Trick or Treat, Limestone and Clay, for which she was awarded the Yorkshire Post Book Award (Yorkshire Author of the Year), Partial Eclipse and Now You See Me, the story of the unlikely relationship between Lamb, a former patient in a psychiatric ward, and Doggo, a fugitive on the run from the police. Her latest novel is Chosen (2010). Lesley Glaister lives with her husband between Sheffield and Orkney.
She has three sons and teaches Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Lesley was a winner of the 2014 Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize for Little Egypt.
