The mystical thriller Tree of Lies Brings Francis Harding Victory Automatic translate
LONDON. Costa Book Award, the main literary prize, was awarded to a children’s book.
The award was established 45 years ago and was previously called the Whitbread Book Award. Despite the presence on the list of nominees of the work of the three-time owner of “Costa” Kate Atkinson (Kate Atkinson), the title of the best book in Britain and Ireland, as well as 43. 000 prize dollars received a book for children “The Tree of Lies” (Frances Hardinge (Frances Hardinge). A fascinating plot and skillful fusion of several genres will allow this book to be in the top of readers’ preferences, and someone will be reminded of the triumphant take-off of Joan Rowling. An investigation into the causes of the unexpected death of his father leads the main character to a mysterious tree. It comes to life and bears fruit when lying words sound next to it. Eating fruits growing on it, a person gets a chance to find out the truth hidden until now. Taking advantage of the unique capabilities of a strange tree and starting to lie uncontrollably, the girl is faced with the fact that the situation unfolds in an unexpected way.
The first story - à la Agatha Christie - Hardinge wrote at age 6. On one page, a dramatization of a hero’s death, an attempt at poisoning and severe punishment of a murderer fit. For many years, Hardinge wrote "to the table", not daring to publish her literary experiences. Desperate to persuade Francis to show something written to the professionals, her friend, writer Rhiannon Lassiter, secretly sent several chapters from her book Fly by night to Macmillan. The result exceeded all expectations: an immediate proposal to sign the contract and a victory in the The Branford Boase Award, which was awarded for an outstanding literary debut.
One of the highlights of the image and the mascot of Harding was a velvet black hat. It provokes unexpected associations with the magical headgear from Hogwarts, which distributed young wizards to departments. Harding’s hat clearly brought her luck.
