Description
"I write this sitting in the kitchen sink' is the first line of this timeless, witty and enchanting novel about growing up. Cassandra Mortmain lives with her bohemian and impoverished family in a crumbling castle in the middle of nowhere. Her journal records her life with her beautiful, bored sister, Rose, her fadingly glamorous stepmother, Topaz, her little brother Thomas and her eccentric novelist father who suffers from a financially crippling writer's block. However, all their lives are turned upside down when the American heirs to the castle arrive and Cassandra finds herself falling in love for the first time."

Author description

Dodie Smith was born in Lancashire in 1896. She trained at RADA and went on to carve out a career as both a novelist and a playwright, producing seven novels and ten plays. She wrote I Capture the Castle during the Second World War while living in America with her husband, and it was a great commercial and critical success when published in 1949. Some seven years later her children's classic, The Hundred and One Dalmatians - inspired by her own beloved Dalmatian, Pongo - was published. It remains the work for which she is probably most well-known, in large part thanks to the iconic Walt Disney film based on it. Dodie Smith died in 1990.
