Joan Aiken is one of my all time favourite children s writers Her books were out of print for a while and I haunted second hand bookshops in the hopes of building up my collection My copy of this wonderful book was bought from the Glebe Library years ago and still has its yellow cardboard filing card in an envelope glued inside the front cover Happily her books have all recently been re issued with fabulous new covers and so are easy to get hold of now It s difficult to exactly categorise Joan Aiken s work It s historical fiction with a Dickensian feel thanks to its brilliantly drawn characters both comic and villainous unusual names and dark atmospheric settings Her stories are fabulously inventive and often have surprising elements in them like pink whales Some of the books have an alternative historical setting with Good King James III on the throne of England and the wicked Hanoverians trying to blow up Parliament HouseMIDNIGHT IS A PLACE is the most realist of her novels and uite possibly her darkest It tells the story of a lonely boy named Lucas who lives at Midnight Court next to a smoggy industrial town called Blastburn His guardian is a foul tempered brandy drinking eccentric who won the great house in a card game many years before One day the orphaned daughter of the previous owner comes to live at Midnight Court Soon Lucas and Anna Marie are left destitute and must fend for themselves in the tough streets of Blackburn There is one particular scene set in the carpet making factory that I shall never forget as a child it burnt itself deep into my imagination It is also striking for its refusal to restore the children s lost wealth instead they find happiness by making their own way in the world Joan Aiken is one of the great children s writers and deserves to be much widely celebrated

Joan Aiken is a master at creating atmosphere and Midnight Is a Place is no exception the book could well be called a Gothic novel for children with its orphaned hero and heroine disagreeable guardian mysterious events and gloomy setting Lucas Bell an orphan lives with his guardian Sir Randolph Grimsby and his tutor Julian Oakapple in an old mansion called Midnight Court Soon after the arrival of Anna Marie another orphan and the grandchild of the previous owner of Midnight Court Lucas and Anna Marie are forced to fend for themselves on the streets of the dismal city of Blastburn There is never a dull moment the story speeds along through the dangerous mill where the workers may be crushed by a press or drowned in glue to the sewers where man eating hogs run in packs The force of Aiken s imagination is present on every page in the suspenseful story the memorable characters and the ominous atmosphere
