The January cover of BfK features an illustration from No More Television!, the latest title from Philippe Dupasquier who is the subject of this month's Authorgraph. The book is published by Andersen Press and we're grateful to them for their help in using this on our front cover.
Tension and anxiety worm through the sophisticated style of this novel. Here a desperate, sexually abused 17-year-old is wrestling with the notion that the raft of lies on which her life is currently built, and telling someone the awful truth, both possess a kind of freedom. But, for her, which will be the better of the two? This is in-the-head plotting, which won't appeal to everyone, but then neither does it condescend with the 'social workers' guide to incest' formula which can be so characteristic in similar books on this issue.
