- Harriet Said… (written in 1958 and published in1972)
About the book:
- Virago Modern Classics, 2012, 175 p.
- First published in 1972, written in 1958
- My rating: 4,5 stars
- The book was inspired by newspapers reports on theParker-Hulme murder case, which happened in 1954 in New Zealand. This case was also the basis of (a) the film Heavenly Creatures (IMDb, 1994), directed by Peter Jackson; (b) the unproduced screenplay called The Christchurch Murder, by Angela Carter; (c) Evie Wyld’s novel All The Birds Singing; (d) the film Mais ne nous délivrez pas du mal (Don’t Deliver Us From Evil,IMDb, 1971), directed by Joël Séria.
- This book was read for Beryl Bainbridge Reading Week and for 20 Books of Summer.
