*Now a six-part TV series starring Natalie Dormer, from Amazon Prime* A 50th-anniversary edition of the landmark novel about three “gone girls” that inspired the acclaimed 1975 film, featuring a foreword by Maile Meloy, author of Do Not Become Alarmed It was a cloudless summer day in the year 1900. Everyone at Appleyard College for Young Ladies agreed it was just right for a picnic at Hanging Rock. After lunch, a group of three girls climbed into the blaze of the afternoon sun, pressing on through the scrub into the shadows of the secluded volcanic outcropping. Farther, higher, until at last they disappeared. They never returned. . . . Mysterious and subtly erotic, Picnic at Hanging Rock inspired the iconic 1975 film of the same name by Peter Weir. A beguiling landmark of Australian literature, it stands with Shirley Jackson’s We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, and Jeffrey Eugenides’ The Virgin Suicides as a masterpiece of intrigue.

Febrero de 1900. Un grupo de alumnas del selecto colegio Appleyard para señoritas se dispone a celebrar un picnic el día de San Valentín. Lo que empieza siendo una inocente comida campestre se torna en tragedia cuando tres niñas y una profesora desaparecen misteriosamente entre los recovecos de Hanging Rock, un imponente conjunto de rocas rodeado de la salvaje y asfixiante vegetación australiana. La única chica que logra regresar, presa de la histeria, no recuerda nada de lo sucedido. Considerada una de las más desazonantes novelas de culto de la literatura anglosajona, «Picnic en Hanging Rock» dio lugar a una aclamadísima película de Peter Weir, que contribuyó a incrementar el éxito de una obra ya mítica. Jamás se reveló si los hechos narrados fueron reales o no, y ese ambiguo e intrigante juego alentó la aparición de una legión de seguidores que afirmaban conocer lo ocurrido aquel aciago día de San Valentín en el sobrecogedor paisaje de Hanging Rock.
