Rose Tremain
Tremain's novel "Restoration", a bestseller in Britain, was short-listed for the Booker Prize, and "Sacred Country" won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. In addition to novels, Tremain is also a writer of short fiction (she won the Dylan Thomas Award for her first collection) and TV and radio plays.
"A well-executed, intense tale of dark family secrets coming to light in a sunny place."
"[A] dark and unflinching novel....TRESPASS is a precision-tooled novel. The author of 15 works of fiction, among them the Booker-shortlisted RESTORATION, Tremain knows how to work the authorial searchlight, which in this case she keeps squarely directed at the question of expropriation: literal...emotional...sexual ...and cultural...."
From the Publisher
Annotation The simultaneously enticing and inhospitable Cevennes mountains of Southern France provide the gorgeous, menacing backdrop for this tale of betrayal and jealousy. Aging antiques-dealer Anthony Verey joins his sister and her lover in the mountain region hoping to make a new home for himself, but his arrival threatens to disrupt his sister's relationship. Nearby another far-more insidious sibling rivalry takes place as Aramon seeks to drive his sister Audrun from her tiny bungalow on the family estate so he can sell off the land and make a fortune. Rose Tremain writes with a keen understanding of the deep undercurrents of the region, a place where nature, the local people, and encroaching modernity all share an uneasy peace. Beautiful and cruel at turns, TRESPASS depicts characters committing and suffering from a host of transgressions both great and small.
Editors Note In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Aramon, the owner, is so haunted by his violent past that he's become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin. Meanwhile, his sister Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. When he sets his sights on the Mas, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion."Rose Tremain's writing is so good, she makes us hear English anew," writes the San Francisco Chronicle. This powerful and unsettling work reveals yet another dimension to Tremain's extraordinary imagination.
