A New Yorker by birth, Rebecca Coleman grew up in the close suburbs of Washington, D.C., in an academic family. A year spent in Germany, at the age of eight, would later provide the basis for the protagonist’s background in The Kingdom of Childhood. She first learned about the Waldorf School movement at age 14 and quickly developed a fascination with its culture and philosophies.

What might have been a clichéd story of a frustrated middle aged mother and a teenage schoolboy is cleverly sidestepped in this excellent debut. Instead we have dark disturbing story, driven by illicit passion and a past secret that quickly infects and corrupts. We loved it and think you won’t be able to stop talking about this controversial, unsettling and fascinating story.
