McCarten, A: Spinners

A Novel

In this sprightly, quirky novel, McCarten adeptly describes the snowballing effects of national publicity and town gossip. Teenage meat-packer Delia Chapman's claim that she has encountered a group of aliens is at first considered temporary insanity because of the stresses of her job. For how else can her story, which gains her instant tabloid fame and the envy of her catty friends, be explained? Things get stranger when Delia realizes she's pregnant, but remembers little more of her supernatural experience than lights and noise.
When two of Delia's friends also disclose their pregnancies and likewise blame the spacemen, the town of Opunake begins to buzz with reporters.
Portrait
The English Harem and Death of a Superhero were both published by Alma in 2006. McCarten has also written twelve stage plays, including the worldwide success Ladies' Night, which won France's Moliere Prize in 2001.
