Lynne Reid Banks (born 31 July 1929) is a British author of books for children and adults. She has written forty-five books, including the best-selling children's novel The Indian in the Cupboard, which has sold over 10 million copies and has been successfully adapted to film. Her first novel, The L-Shaped Room, published in 1960, was an instant and lasting best seller. It was later made into a movie of the same name and led to two sequels, The Backward Shadow and Two is Lonely.
Lynne Reid Banks' compassionate first novel examines the stigma of unmarried motherhood in pre-pill, pre-Abortion Act Britain. While the social climate has changed drastically since publication, a transgressive frisson still crackles from the pages' The Guardian. Pregnant by accident, kicked out of home by her father, 27-year-old Jane Graham goes to ground in the sort of place she feels she deserves - a bug-ridden boarding-house attic in Fulham.
But though the shape-changing provides mystery and suspense, it proves secondary to the present-day events and their dramatic resolution. By introducing the supernatural, Banks is able to treat the issue of incest with delicacy and insight. A few strands are not well integrated here: the snake seems to disappear unexplained, while Melusine's behavior at the end-abandoning her new friends and letting them worry about her as she returns to her ancestral home after her father's death-is not well motivated.
