The Scorpion House

by Fay Granville-Hitchman | 20 December 2012
Synopsis
The Scorpion House is a memoir of an African childhood that is both shocking and inspiring. It is the story of Fay, a little girl growing up in Rhodesia in the 1940s and '50s within a deeply dysfunctional family. Originally from a privileged background, Fay's father becomes a feckless and irresponsible alcoholic. Her unhinged and unpredictable mother neglects her children, but also evokes sympathy as an artistic, animal-obsessed woman trapped in a desperate situation. Fay's parents lead chaotic, rootless lives that will leave the reader flabbergasted. Seen through the eyes of a child, this unique story is often funny and uplifting. From Hollywood, to guns and nuns, this gripping tale will engage and enthral readers leaving them incredulous and entertained. In the tradition of the best-selling Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth, The Scorpion House is a poignant, riveting read.
