What inspired you to write House of the Hanged?

Strangely, the book would never have been written if I hadn’t been robbed while backpacking through the south of France when I was 17. This is how I first came to know Le Rayol, where the story is set. Some friends of my travelling companion lived there, and they kindly put us up for a few dreamy days while we waited for my replacement traveller’s cheques to arrive. I was very struck by that stretch of coast, with its rocky headlands and its sandy coves of unnaturally white sand. In many ways, the novel is the coming together of this memory and a book I love: Jigsaw by Sybille Bedford, her biographical account of growing up near Toulon in the 1920s.
