Writing For Prizes
The stories people tell about their lives hide the darkest truths, but they cannot stay hidden forever.
Oscar Halliday is an historical novelist who has suffered writer’s block since the end of his relationship with Marcus Wild. Marcus was not only his lover, but also his muse and now alone and in debt, Oscar opens their Languedoc farmhouse as a retreat for aspiring writers, coaching them to do what he no longer can.
But when an earnest young Cambridge graduate encourages Oscar to start writing again, his stories begin to reveal what actually happened between him and Marcus—a truth as sad as it is shocking.
