A Talk with Sheila Kohler, author of "Cracks" and "One Girl"Zoland: In "Cracks" there is a character called Sheila Kohler. Is she really you? Why would you choose to name a character after yourself, particularly in such a dark book?SK: Although I use a character called Sheila Kohler, I don't think "Cracks" is any more autobiographical than my other books.

Put adolescents together in a confined environment with only minimal adult supervision, and bad things will happen-a truism in literature as well as life. ISBN13:9781581950267.

ONE OF PEOPLE MAGAZINE'S BEST NEW BOOKS "A searing and intimate memoir about love turned deadly. The BBC "An intimate illumination of sisterhood and loss.

There is grease around our mouths, down to our chins; our lips are stained with red wine, our lipstick, smudged, our camouflage, undone. The book most often hovers in the past, but returns sporadically to the present, always through the collective voice of the girls in what writer's refer to as first person plural narration, a deceptively familiar voice, which always keeps the reader an arm's length distance away from the true inner thoughts of the characters. Because of this somewhat vague narration, when the reader finally pieces together the puzzle at the end and the truth crashes over like a wave, there is a moment of "How could I have not seen this coming?"

EVEN THE INNOCENT HOLD VIOLENCE IN THEIR HEARTS...A beautiful schoolgirl mysteriously disappears into the South African veld. Forty years later, thirteen members of the missing girl's swimming team gather at their old boarding school for a reunion, and look back to the long, dry weeks leading to Fiamma's disappearance. As teenage memories and emotions resurface, the women relive the horror of a long-buried secret. A stunning and singular tale of the passion and tribalism of adolescence, CRACKS lays bare the violence that lies in the heart of even the most innocent.
