"A Dark Corner" is a chilling depiction of domestic horror. First published in 1971 it tells the story of Errol, a young man who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. In a North-West London suburb on a wet evening Errol mistakenly rings the doorbell of the house of Nelly and Arthur Didcot. Wet-through and coughing he asks about a room. Despite arriving at the wrong house Nelly invites him in to stay just for one night. Behind the veneer of middle-class respectability however a dreadful truth is about to be revealed in a horrifying and murderous climax.'Celia Dale is past mistress of the bizarre truth behind normal facades' - "New Statesman". 'She is bitingly spot-on with her dialogue which catches an undertow of hope, desire and revulsion' - "The Times". 'Celia Dale has created an established corner in tales of domestic terror and Arthur Didcot in "A Dark Corner" is a totally fiendish fiend' - "Daily Telegraph".
