Lucy Clarke Taster Video
Welcome to LoveReadingLitfest. Below you will find a short 'Taster' video clip taken from the exclusive LoveReading LitFest interview where our own Paul Blezard talks to Lucy Clarke about her book 'The Castaways'
You wake on a beautiful, secluded beach. The sun bakes down, a shimmering ocean stretches into the horizon. It’s as far from home as you could imagine.
Yet this is no ordinary escape.
Next to the wreck of a plane, a stranger circles the camp fire. Somewhere, a baby cries. Someone sharpens a knife in the shadows, scoring a list of the dead onto the bark of a tree.
Day by day, the island’s wildness creeps under everyone’s skin, tensions and lies whispering on the breeze.
A secret beach.
An island with no name.
What a place for your last holiday…
