About the Book

'You can't imagine what it's like when your youth comes back - and beauty, and more... I found out that if I took the pills I could turn - just like that - into the person I had been. Yes, into me! Eliza! Where had I gone? Who had I been?'

Emma Tennant's brilliant re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson tells of an impoverished single mother at the bitter end of her tether, who finds dark pharmaceutical means to revive her looks and career ambitions. This splitting of personality, however, leads to disintegration and murder.

'Fascinating.' Financial Times

'Brilliant... Wittily worked out, perceptive of modern m
ores and values.' Times Literary Supplement

'Reminiscent of Muriel Spark at her very darkest and very best.' Scotland on Sunday
