The Far Cry

Called 'a savage comedy with a vicious streak' by Elizabeth Bowen when it first came out, this novel is the story of Teresa, a teenage girl in the 1940s, whose father suddenly takes her out of school and on a ship to India. Susan Hill in her Afterword calls the book 'a small masterpiece…beautifully shaped, evocative, moving and mature.'
