‘Be sure you don’t answer the door to anyone you don’t know.’
A little Patricia Highsmith, a touch of Shirley Jackson: the long-neglected Celia Fremlin wrote short, sharp stories that threw women’s lives into shiver-inducing relief.
In each of these twinned tales, a mother and daughter meet again, and an ordinary home becomes the setting for a return of the repressed.
Britain's equivalent to Patricia Highsmith, Celia Fremlin wrote psychological thrillers that changed the landscape of crime fiction for ever... domestic, subtle, penetrating - and quite horribly chilling.
Celia Fremlin is an astonishing writer, who explores that nightmare country where brain, mind and self battle to establish the truth. She illuminates her dark world with acute perception and great wit.
