Read full description of the books:


Lejos de la inseguridad y la contaminación de Londres, los acomodados habitantes de Hanmouth −un pueblo en la desembocadura del río Hain en el canal de Bristol− viven orgullosos y muy hipotecados en unos pintorescos cottages en el centro del pueblo, rodeados de tiendas de antigüedades y de quesos gourmet y de espaldas a los habitantes menos favorecidos de las afueras. Cuando una niña de ocho años es secuestrada, los ojos de toda Inglaterra se vuelven hacia el idílico Hanmouth, que es el centro de todo tipo de especulaciones.

Esta novela coral, cuyos personajes esconden más de un secreto, examina el concepto contemporáneo de privacidad y retrata con extraordinaria incisión la sociedad británica actual.

Hensher was born in South London, although he spent the majority of his childhood and adolescence in Sheffield, attending Tapton School.[2] He did his undergraduate degree at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford before attending Cambridge, where he was awarded a PhD for work on 18th century painting and satire. Early in his career he worked as a clerk in the House of Commons, from which he was fired over the content of an interview he gave to a gay magazine.[1] He has published a number of novels, is a regular contributor, columnist and book reviewer for newspapers and weeklies such as The Guardian, The Spectator , The Mail on Sunday and The Independent.
The Bedroom of the Mister’s Wife (1999) brings together 14 of his stories, including ‘Dead Languages’, which A. S. Byatt selected for her Oxford Book of English Short Stories (1998), making Hensher the youngest author included in the anthology.
Since 2005 he has taught creative writing at the University of Exeter. He has edited new editions of numerous classic works of English Literature, such as those by Charles Dickens and Nancy Mitford, and Hensher served as a judge for the Booker Prize. From 2013 he will hold the post of Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.[3]
