Synopsis: “Wickedly readable… Daphne du Maurier has instinct, with the result that every woman instinctively wants to read her.” –New York Times Book Review
Maria, Niall and Celia have grown up in the shadow of their famous parents – their father, a flamboyant singer and their mother, a talented dancer. Now pursuing their own creative dreams, all three siblings feel an undeniable bond, but it is Maria and Niall who share the secret of their parents’ past affairs.
Alternately comic and poignant, The Parasites is based on the artistic milieu its author knew best, and draws the reader effortlessly into that magical world.
