"Penguin Decades" bring you the novels that helped shape modern Britain. When they were published, some were bestsellers, some were considered scandalous, and others were simply misunderstood. All represent their time and helped define their generation, while today each is considered a landmark work of storytelling. Susan Hill's "I'm King of the Castle" was first published in 1970. Telling the story of two boys forced to live together by their widowed parents, it is a chilling portrayal of childhood cruelty and persecution, of parental blindness and of our own ambivalence to what are supposed to be the happiest days of our lives. 作者簡介 Susan Hill was born in Scarborough, Yorkshire, in 1942 and read English at King's College, London. She is married to the Shakespearean scholar Stanley Wells, and they live in a Gloucestershire village from which she runs a small publishing company called Long Barn Books. She has written over a dozen novels including Mrs de Winter, the sequel to Du Maurier's Rebecca.
