A fantasy for grown-ups and not-so-grown-ups.
We are on a passenger steamer somewhere in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Ten-year-old Miranda Porter, only daughter of Major and Mrs. 'Lillibet' Porter, is drowsing in her cabin when the light of the full moon falls through the porthole and a strangely disembodied voice awakes her with the words: 'It's a braw, bricht, moonlicht nicht the nicht.'
Thus begins the adventure of Miranda Porter, an adventure which will lead her and the reader to a renewed friendship with the very same Peter Pan whom she and we already know (although he claims to remember nothing of a previous existence), to a near-deadly encounter with Captain Hook and to many wistful nights in the depths of the Indian Ocean.
In Peter Pan and the Only Children, Gilbert Adair has reinvented one of the world's most beloved heroes and given him an entirely new playground. Known for taking on literary challenges that other novelists would never dare touch, Adair has succeeded in creating a sequel to J.M. Barrie's play and book that both captures the spirit and poignancy of the original and lends it a new vigour for our time.
