Michael hesitated, then said, “I feel a bit like the prince, as if I’m not in control of anything, like someone else put me in this chair, made my head the way it is and Bibi and father the way they are. I wonder if there’s a plot to life, like in a story, and we’re just doing what we have to do.

Michael’s face was a model of innocence and intensity. Having been ill since birth he had seen little of the world. Not that this followed absolutely. It was just that his father was too busy trying to make a literary agency work and his mother, unable to cope, had left them both soon after Michael was born. It was enough to turn a saint into a sinner, but Michael had a wonderful disposition. He never saw himself as suffering unduly. He admired his father who grafted hard for very little and felt only sadness that his mother had abandoned them both to fend for themselves. Michael’s attitude to his parents was not shared by his carer.
In his besieged palace, Prince Tigreus has a battle to fight. So too does a lonely writer’s daughter and a very special boy, the three of them entangled in ways they cannot understand. Who has written the storyline of their lives and what will be the outcome? Truth and fable clash in this unusual, demanding and moving tale.
