Revenge is a dish best eaten cold.
Lize Spit gained a master's degree in screenplay writing and has also written prose and poetry, published in several magazines. In 2013 she won both the Jury Prize and the Readers' Prize at WriteNow!, a prestigious writing competition. Her debut novel The Melting was published to widespread acclaim, became an instant bestseller and has been sold in ten languages. She lives in Brussels.
Challenging and disturbing, The Melting is an incredibly cruel
fable about friendship and adolescence . . . Lize Spit raises the
tension and accelerates the suspense until reaching a dark and
majestic ending . . . She knows no fear. It is we, the readers,
that are left trembling.
The Melting is like a long-range missile that at first only casts a dark shadow as it flies overhead, apparently without causing any damage, but then strikes its target with calculated precision.
So good you can hardly believe it's a first novel.
Fascinating . . . Terrifying, dark, both foreign and familiar, this first novel leaves a taste of delicious unease.
Engrossing, elegant, terrifying. A perfect literary thriller.
