The Children Of Dynmouth

Author:

The Children Of Dynmouth – a classic prize-winning novel by William Trevor.

Penguin Decades bring you the novels that helped shape modern Britain.

The 1970s was a decade of anger and discontent. Britain endured power cuts and strikes. America pulled out of Vietnam and saw its President resign from office. Feminism and face lifts vied for women’s hearts (and minds). And for many, prog rock, punk and disco weren’t just music but ways of life.

William Trevor’s The Children of Dynmouth (Winner of the Whitbread Award and shortlisted for the Booker Prize) was first published in 1976 and is a classic account of evil lurking in the most unlikely places. In it we follow awkward, lonely, curious teenager Timothy Gedge as he wanders around the bland seaside town of Dynmouth. Timothy takes a prurient interest in the lives of the adults there, who only realise the sinister purpose to which he seeks to put his knowledge too late.
