Eiworth Publishing decided to release both books simultaneously as they are aimed at different readerships. "Frantic" is a nostalgic
novel about the early '70s, set in London and San Francisco. "Crushed" is an illustrated, funny teen fiction book for the entire family to
enjoy. The one thing that the books have in common is author Frances Lynn's original writing style.
Author Frances Lynn finished "Frantic" and "Crushed" within months of each other. 'I started to write Frantic in the early Seventies, but I wrote Crushed very quickly. I didn't plan to write a teen fiction novel, but it was a welcome change from writing about drugs and psychotic illness, ' Frances Lynn says.
"Frantic" is a fast moving stream of consciousness, which reads like acid on steroids. Seventies survivors will wistfully confirm the authenticity of this frantic 'reportage', if they have any brain-cells left that is. Their children should also be fascinated by this dis-inhibited period of history, just to see why their hippy-hearted parents are still stuck in their flower-power time warp.
'An informative read for would-be celebrity hunters, historians, and people with various degrees of bi-polar disorder, mental healthcare workers and most of all pre-teens who want to give their grand parents a heart attack,'
Ulla Ward de Mora.
"Crushed" focuses on sibling rivalry between a pair of non-identical twins. Their parents and their eccentric friends are survivors from the Seventies. That's why adults who enjoy "Frantic" will also appreciate Frances Lynn's quirky humour in "Crushed".
'The narrator's voice is as Grimm as the characters - takes us inside the darkness of the children's minds as they try to cope with their dysfunctional family and their teenage angst," Andrew Palmer.
