Anne Fine: Two books ‘inextricably linked’

It was fascinating to hear Anne Fine talking at the Bath Children’s Literature Festival about the links between her latest novel, Blood Family, and her 2010 novel, The Devil Walks.  I knew they were connected, of course, but not how closely.  Both are told from the viewpoint of a young boy who has had, for different reasons, what is sometimes called a ‘difficult’ start in life, due to neglect or abuse. However, The Devil Walks is a gothic horror, set firmly a long time in the past, whereas Blood Family is entirely in the present day (very present, as we can tell from recent news headlines).
