A Private Place

Amanda Craig

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Savagely funny, compelling and a cult classic, A PRIVATE PLACE has struck a chord with generations. It's now available with a new afterword by the author.

Knotshead is a school catering for the children of the rich, famous, liberal - and deluded. With its progressive curriculum, complacent staff and beautiful grounds, it looks like Paradise. But the clever, the odd and the bookish are relentlessly persecuted as pupils make their own rules in a bubble of privilege and prejudice. When Alice, the Headmaster's intellectual step-daughter, and the much-expelled American millionaire Winthrop T Sheen join forces against the school bully, Grub Viner, a gifted pianist and school ''joker'', has to choose between love and loyalty, and black comedy escalates to murder.
