9780099537632: Forgetting ZoŽ

Zoe Nielsen was just like any other ten-year-old walking to school, not knowing that a chance encounter with Thurman Hayes would lead to her abduction and imprisonment in a converted nuclear bunker, 4,000 miles away, beneath a remote ranch house in Arizona. Enslaved in her underground tomb, deprived of food and light and water, the girl Zoe once was steadily begins to disappear...But over time Thurman grows tired of the rapidly maturing Zoe, and when he decides it is time to get rid of her, Zoe must finally make her bid for freedom. Forgetting Zoe is a moving, epic tale of courage, survival, horror and loss, that explores how a bond of affection and intimacy can develop between captive and captor.

Review:

"I read Forgetting Zoe with great pleasure, admiration, and envy. What a writer. The characters are so sharply drawn they're etched into the page... Captivating. A great storytelling achievement." -- Tim Pears "A convincing portrait of how childhood brutality is passed down the generations...Direct in its depiction of abuse, Forgetting Zoe is never less than psychologically acute." Financial Times "Stockholm syndrome is a curious but understandable condition, intelligently and vividly explored by Ray Robinson...Ray Robinson is a writer with keen observation. His prose is hard, abrupt and sinewy...It is a novel that contains violence but also stillness, that reveals more than it makes explicit...A mature and accomplished work." -- Allan Massie The Scotsman "Very provocative...Powerfully done." -- Tom Sutcliffe Saturday Review, Radio 4 "Terribly convincing...The ventriloquism is very skilled." -- Kevin Jackson Saturday Review, Radio 4
