9780099526957: The Beacon

Colin. May. Frank. Berenice. The Prime children grew up in a bleak country farm house called The Beacon. Colin and Berenice married locally. May went to university in London, but came home within a year and never left again. Only Frank, quiet, watchful Frank, got away. He left for Fleet Street and a career in journalism but its the publication of a book about his childhood that brings the fame and money he craves - and tears his family apart.

Review:

"A moving, evocative and rewarding novel" ( The Times)

"A brilliantly eerie little tale...with a very adroitly handled contemporary theme: the misery memoir" ( Scotland on Sunday)

" The Beacon uses a small canvas, but it examines larger issues of truth, mental health and memory... Ideas about wasted lives, about grinding exhaustion at the expense of self-expression and about rank injustice are all here in a novel of great structural and stylistic control" ( Guardian)

"Magnificent...It is all done so well, so wisely, that this short book is richly satisfying...it is a little masterpiece" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Captivating... There is, from the start, a highly charged atmosphere of anxiety and ambiguity...the suspense and mystery work perfectly, and for this Hill's economy is exactly what is needed" ( Financial Times)

Review:

`Its somnambulism is compelling, cut through with sloe-sharp details...It is a moving, evocative and rewarding novel'
