The Last House on Needless Street is the final book in Richard and Judy’s Autumn Book Club collection. It’s the story of a murderer, a stolen child, and revenge. An unspeakable truth binds the family that live in the last house on Needless Street, but a new neighbour is intent on uncovering the truth.
Award-winning author Catriona Ward joins Richard and Judy to discuss why she feels the horror genre historically has a problematic relationship with mental health, and why you actually have to be incredibly empathetic to write a good horror book. Plus, she explains the hugely important and clever function Dissociative Identity Disorder serves in people’s lives as a protection mechanism from trauma and abuse.
