9780007116096: The Wasp Factory

Enter if you can bear it – the extraordinary private world of Frank, just sixteen, and unconventional, to say the least.

‘Two years after I killed Blyth, I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different reasons and more fundamental reasons than I’d disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did my young cousin Esmeralda, more or less on a whim. That’s my score to date. Three. I haven’t killed anybody for years, and don’t intend to ever again. It was just a stage I was going through.’

At last, a reader who does it justice . . . Peter Kenny is the one reader (I've heard five) who brings out Banks's glorious sardonic wit. Good things are worth waiting for ( Sue Arnold, GUARDIAN)

A Gothic horror story of quite exceptional quality...macabre, bizarre and...quite impossible to put down ( FINANCIAL TIMES)

A mighty imagination has arrived on the scene ( MAIL on Sunday)
