The Scourging of Poor Little Maggie

The story of Maggie Frake, only child, millionaire's daughter, victim of inverted snobbery and horrific cruelty. This tale follows her from difficult school days, through doomed relationships and personal tragedies to a surreal and horrifying climax. However despite the grim subject matter, the narrative throughout is laced with hilarious, rich, if somewhat black humour.

"This harrowing , tragic and deeply ennobling book, caused me to weep for two days after reading it. I had not experienced this reaction since seeing the film "The Elephant Man".
