Revenge, Jealousy, Betrayal: Q&A with Adele Parks about her new book I Invited Her In
It is part of the human condition and although often seen as showing weakness of character, the kind of fanatic strength derived from love, or blind faith, may also lead to betrayal. In my novel Breaking Light the boy protagonist Gabriel believes that he has betrayed his best friend Michael. But as he grows older, he realises that it is himself that he has betrayed; that repression of self is a form of duplicity. As he struggles to come to terms with his past in order to allow himself some happiness and love, he discovers that the adults who could have saved him and Michael as children were all guilty of betrayal through their self-deception, vanity and pride. But then, they were only human. The End of the Affair, published in , is a sad and beautiful story of love racked by jealousy and Catholic guilt.
This copy is for your personal non-commercial use only. Two year-old schoolboys who are both ordinary and extraordinary hold the centre roles in this touching novel from the talented Gilly Macmillan. Abdi Mahad is a Somali refugee whose father can barely support his family driving a cab in Bristol, England. Abdi and Noah consider themselves best friends. In the course of this simple and heartbreaking story, small pieces of tragedy — the impact of a long-ago rape, a death, a couple of possible betrayals, not to mention a climactic shootout — all enter into the plot before the fates of the two year-olds are finally decided. The murder and sleuthing that qualify Fever as a crime novel take up comparatively little space in this page book.
