Porky by Deborah Moggach

Book Description

From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel At school they called her Porky on account of the pigs her family kept outside their bungalow near Heathrow. But she felt no different - not until she realised she was losing her innocence in a way that none of her friends could possibly imagine. Only a child robbed of her childhood can know too late what it means to be loved too little and loved too much.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » This is not a comforting book. In fact, it is bleak and desperately sad. The subject of the book, Porky, is so-called because of the pigs her family keep outside their bungalow near Heathrow. Awkward and bullied at school, she tells her story from the perspective of adulthood. Her family is broken and dislocated, lacking in love and understanding and as she grows up she becomes more and more unhappy. In fact, Moggach has produced a heartrending novel - and one that is difficult to stick with at first because of the subject matter. But persevere. Abuse is a challenging subject for anyone to use in a work of fiction but Moggach turns this novel into a gripping and pathos-filled read. (Kirkus UK)
