Caryl Phillips s The Lost Child is a sweeping story of orphans and outcasts, haunted by the past and fighting to liberate themselves from it. At its centre is Monica Johnson, cut off from her parents after falling in love with a foreigner, and her bitter struggle to raise her sons in the shadow of the wild moors of the north of England. Intertwined with her modern narrative is the ragged childhood of Emily Brontë s Heathcliff, the anti-hero of Wuthering Heights and one of literature s most enigmatic lost boys.Biographie de l'auteur :
