Books Info:

Wild Nights free pdf To the family in the house crouched between the hills, Aunt Zita's annual visits, like the north wind that accompanies her, bring chaos, terror and enchantment. Yet to the young narrator, Aunt Zita's visits herald every wild night of the imagination: here fabulous feasts precede fantastic flights on the wind's back, over the sleeping village to all the glittering balls and exotic colours of an unknown world. Only the advent of Aunt Thelma and the winter wind can quench Zita's fire - that and the people from the village who cannot bear her magic...

About Emma Tennant

Emma Tennant was born in London and educated at St Paul's Girls' School. She spent the World War II years and her childhood summers at the family's faux Gothic mansion The Glen in Peeblesshire. Her family also owned estates in Trinidad. Tennant grew up in the modish London of the 1950s and 1960s. She worked as a travel writer for Queen magazine and an editor for Vogue, publishing her first novel, The Colour of Rain, under a pseudonym when she was twenty-six. Between 1975 and 1979, she edited a literary magazine, Bananas, which helped launch the careers of several young novelists. A large number of books by Tennant have followed: thrillers, children's books, fantasies, and several revisionist takes on classic novels, including a sequel to Pride and Prejudice called Pemberley. In later years, she began to write about her own life in such books as Burnt Diaries (1999), which details her affair with Ted Hughes. In April 2008, she married her partner of 33 years, Tim Owens.
