9780571219704: The Moth Diaries

Haunted by the death of her poet father, and coming to terms with the usual trials and tribulations of adolescence, the narrator of Klein's first novel is a boarder in an all-girls school in the 1960s. Less than usual are the series of events that unfold in her diary: the arrival of a new girl, Ernessa, who seems to have stepped out of a Gothic novel; the death in mysterious circumstances of two of the narrator's friends. Are the events connected? The narrator thinks so, eventually believing that Ernessa is a vampire. Klein cleverly leaves the reader in the dark as to what has really taken place, while convincingly portraying the hothouse atmosphere of the school and the voice of the narrator - a voice which combines precocious literary detachment with Gothically inspired imagination. A debut with promisingly subtle depths beneath its entertaining surface.

Vom Verlag:

This novel tells the story of odd goings-on in a girls' boarding school in the late 1960s. The unnamed narrator, a student at the school, is intellectual, somewhat aloof and associates with a intense clique of girls. When Dora is found dead one night, a tragic accident is initially suspected.
