Product description

Review

** 'The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams is a debut and new and emphatic voice; this story of the reunion of two batty sisters in their huge and crumbling house completely grips and the lepidopteran theme is totally convincing. (Rodney Troubridge, Waterstone's)

** 'A rewarding read. Latent rivalries resurface as the sisters secretly question which of them has the greater grip on reality in this tantalising family mystery. (Waterstones Books Quarterly)

** 'Adams succeeds in carefully building up an atmosphere of penumbral suspense, creeping towards a tense climax. (LITERARY REVIEW)

** 'Adam s' compelling story unfurls over a single weekend as two sisters, together again in their sixties in their dilapidated family home, are forced to confront the consequences fo the terrible chain of events that began with Vivien's near-fatal childh (PSYCHOLOGIES)

Book Description

* An extraordinarily haunting, subtle and moving first novel about secrets and lies and moths * A marked success in hardback and shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Prize
