Two children: Lark and her brother, Termite, a child unable to walk and talk but full of radiance. Two women: Lola, their mother, and Nonie, their aunt, who for mysterious reasons is the one to raise them. Lark and Termite imaginatively enters the hearts and thoughts of a family, from their home in 1950s West Virginia to Korea, where their father has been sent to fight. It is a story of the power of loss and love, the echoing ramifications of war, family secrets, dreams and ghosts, and the unseen, almost magical bonds that unite and sustain us.

Quatrième de couverture :

'Consistently inventive, evocative and uncompromising. Haunting is a word much overused, but Lark & Termite is exactly that: a novel whose elegant lingering images are hard to shake from the memory. A glowing, powerful and immensely readable paean to the power of family' Independent

'This is a novel that burns itself into your memory' Metro

At the centre of this unforgettable novel are two children: Lark and her brother, Termite, who is unable to walk or talk but is deeply loved by his family. The two are raised by their aunt Nonie in place of Lola, their mother, and Termite's father, Corporal Robert Leavitt, who is caught up in the chaos of the Korean War. As the story shifts through time from West Virginia to Korea the mystery of Lola and Nonie's relationship slowly unravels, as does the story of Lark's hopes for herself and Termite, and her own desire for the personal history she has been denied.

The result is a rich and rewarding novel about the power of loss and love, the echoing ramifications of war, family secrets, dreams and ghosts, and the unseen, almost magical bonds that unite and sustain us.

'This novel is cut like a diamond, with such sharp authenticy and bursts of light' Alice Munro

'An intense tale of love, loss and the bond of family... Extraordinary' The Times

Revue de presse :

"'This novel is cut like a diamond, with such sharp authenticity and bursts of light" (Alice Munro)

"Lark and Termite is extraordinary and it is luminous. This is not simply classic Jayne Anne Phillips. This is something far more extraordinary. It is an astounding feat of the imagination. It is the best novel I've read this year" (Junot Díaz)

"'What a beautiful, beautiful novel this is - so rich and intricate in its drama, so elegantly written, so tender, so convincing, so penetrating, so incredibly moving. I can declare without hesitation or qualification that Lark and Termite is by far the best new novel I've read in the last five years or so" (Tim O'Brien)

"'An extraordinary and brilliant piece of writing...a powerful and tender portrayal of a family'" (Sunday Times)

"Consistently inventive, evocative and uncompromising. Haunting is a word much overused, but Lark and Termite is exactly that: a novel whose elegant lingering images are hard to shake from the memory. This is a glowing, powerful and immensely readable paean to the power of family" (Independent)
