9780143126782: Picnic at Hanging Rock

It was a cloudless summer day in the year nineteen hundred.

Everyone at Appleyard College for Young Ladies agreed it was just right for a picnic at Hanging Rock. After lunch, a group of three of the girls climbed into the blaze of the afternoon sun, pressing on through the scrub into the shadows of Hanging Rock. Further, higher, till at last they disappeared.

They never returned.

Whether Picnic at Hanging Rock is fact or fiction the reader must decide for themselves.

Review:

"This deliciously horrific Australian thriller, set in 1900, could be seen as an anti-picnic cautionary tale." ( Observer)

"Written in a beautifully haunting style that drew me in." (Esther McKay Sun Herald (Australia))

"A sinister tale...laced with touches of other-worldliness" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

On St Valentines Day in 1900 a party of school girls set out for a picnic… some were never to return.

Book Description Penguin Books, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Pure magic. Every fashion film and NYU undergraduate thesis takes its cues from this lyrical masterpiece. In college I tried to make a satirical remake entitled Lunchtime at Dangling Boulder, but all my actors slept too late." Lena Dunham, on the film adaptation "[From the] Victorian hothouse atmosphere and fetishism (from the gloves and stockings to the flowers the girls fondle to the fixation on corsets) and its focus on the burgeoning sexual curiosity of the girls (and the women) . . . to Gothic terrors, supernatural wonder, divine mysticism, or the imperialist unconscious . . . Picnic actively encourages a host of fantasies." Megan Abbott, author of The Fever and Dare Me, in an essay for The Criterion Collection's Blu-ray/DVD edition of the film "A sinister tale. laced with touches of other-worldliness" The Guardian "Deliciously horrific." The Observer "The fact that most people believed that this palpable fiction was a record of a real event is not merely a tribute to the writer. but a testimony to the atavistic power of its theme." The Spectator "Beautifully haunting." The Sun Herald (Australia). Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0143126784
