This is a fast, smart, accessible novel which will be lapped up by young fans of vampire-lit and urban gothic - but with a witty new twist. Meet the Radleys: Peter, Helen and their teenage kids Clara and Rowan. An everyday family who live in a pretty English village and juggle dysfunctional lives. So far, so normal. Except, as Peter and Helen know (but the kids have yet to find out), the Radleys happen to be a family of abstaining vampires. When one night Clara finds herself driven to commit a bloodthirsty act of violence, her parents need to explain a few things: why is their skin is so sensitive to light, why do they all find garlic so repulsive, and why has Clara's recent decision to go vegan had quite such an effect on her behaviour...? But when mysterious Uncle Will swoops into the village, he unleashes a host of shadowy truths and dark secrets that threaten to destroy the Radleys and the world around them. This is a mass-market paperback edition of the Walker/Canongate title "The Radleys".

Revue de presse :

"Dripping in blood, this is a story of family secrets so terrible that they shouldn't be uncovered." (Guardian)

"Red-blooded fiction at its most seductive." (Sunday Telegraph)

"Delightfully eccentric . . . a strangely moving portrait of a marriage." (The Financial Times)

"

A sharp, bloody tale of abstinence and indulgence (and

trying not to eat the neighbours).

" (Steven Hall, author of The Raw Shark Texts)

"Reality bites in a funny family affair. . . pointed, clever and witty." (Kim Newman Independent)

"A witty and humane story about a family of vampires living in respectable English suburbia." (Daily Mail)

"Haig's very original spin on the [vampire] myth is insightful, frightening and uplifting." (The Guardian)

"Smart, snappy, quirky . . . as much a satire on self-denying suburban life as a straightforward bloodthirsty tale." (Scotsman)

"Ratchets up the pace and the tension until the taut conclusion. Bloody good fun." (SFX Magazine)

"Switches deftly between a classic Carrie-style narrative of teen difference, in which the kids are teased for their outsiderness, and a parental tale of mid-life crisis." (Herald)

"Great fun, with much enjoyment derived from the placing of these ancient bloodsuckers in dull English suburbia." (Vogue)

"Haig writes in addictive, bitesize chapters that pump the action along... All vampire fiction has a strong sexual element, but in this book, the passion's not just for the pale-faced teens." (Daily Mail)

"Haig has managed to coax something delightfully new and, unusually, rather English from a saturated genre... [He] combines strong dialogue with a healthy sense of self-parody in a novel that should appeal to all vampire fans, whatever their age." (Metro)

"A witty introduction to present-day vampire lore... Highly recommended." (Observer)

"vampire fans will find lots to enjoy, but it's the blackly comic dissection of the family that makes this book stand out." (The Guardian)

"Witty as well as deep." (Books for Keeps)

"The 'some adult content' coverline gives due warning that teen readers might be bored by adults holding dinner parties and contemplating affaris, but the story should carry them through such longueurs." (Books for Keeps)

"Shot through with wry humour, Haig's lively family saga, replete with sexual frissons and distinctly subversive undercurrents, is carried off with aplomb" (Guardian) --The Financial Times

"[A] life-affirming comedy" (Independent) --Independent

"Written in short, juicy chapters this life-affirming comedy will particularly appeal to older teens" (Emma Hagestadt The Independent) --Independent
