24 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Toby Hawk is a solitary boy in a family of Amazons. His mother, only fifteen years older than him, is a painter on the brink of commercial success. His great-aunt is a wealthy textile designer; her partner, Liberty, a barrister. Meanwhile, eighteen-year-old Toby's world remains a small, closed round of school, domesticity and surfing the Net at night. But everything changes when his mother takes up with a fascinating but enigmatic scientist, Roehm. Patricia Duncker's gripping novel is a disturbing tale of Oedipal passion. It is also an eerie psychological ghost story in the European tradition, whose sources - Freud, Faust and Frankenstein - haunt the pages

11 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Elizabeth Webster is a cantankerous spinster pushing seventy. Forced out of her school-teaching job, she unleashes her sharp tongue and dogmatic opinions on everyone in the English village of Little Blessington." "Then one cold spring night, sitting on the sofa alone, she grinds to a dead halt. To recover from this mysterious, near-fatal illness, her doctor sends her on a journey to a North African country where she ventures into the desert and has a brush with terrorism. Miss Webster, however, no longer cares about anything, least of all Islamic politics and suicide bombers." "Three weeks after her return there is a ring on her doorbell. Standing there in the gusty darkness is a young Arab man of astonishing beauty. Worryingly, he is carrying a large suitcase. But who is Cherif? Why is he there and what does he want?" "Patricia Duncker's new novel is a comedy of errors set in the aftermath of 9/11, in a darkening world moving towards war. This tale about friendship, trust and liberation is full of reversals and surprises, tenderness and humour."--Jacket
