'The stories Newton has to tell are spellbinding.' Mail on Sunday 'A collection of six, extraordinary individual histories, beautifully navigated.' Evening Standard

About the Author

Michael Newton grew up in Brighton, wanting from the age of six to be a writer.On graduating, he started a PhD on ghost stories at University College, London, but really spent his time writing 'bad' plays and novels. When his grant ran out, he went to Harvard for a year as a Visiting Research Fellow.He discovered the subject of his first book, Savage Girls and Wild Boys, by accident and he felt that the stories and the children themselves resonated in him.He has worked in various jobs, including tour guide, clerk, theatre reviewer, and above all, freelance lecturer - at one point, teaching in five institutions at once. In the last four years, he has taught part-time at University College, London, Central St Martin's College of Art and Princeton University in London. He has also written for the Times Literary Supplement.
