From the ROADS Classics series, which aren't just an enthralling read, they are also beautifully designed works of art featuring individual photographs or illustrations that represent major themes from the stories within. A real treat for all book lovers.
What Maisie Knew tracks the plight of Maisie Farange, whose parents, Beale and Ida, are in the thick of a bitter divorce battle. The novel follows our innocent heroine as she charts these unsettling waters, as the adults that make up her world shift her like a pawn, and new role models enter her orbit, offering solace and possible escape. James wields his notoriously complex prose with a light touch in this delicately played and poignant drama, seen through the eyes of a child who has seen too much.
