“The Devil masks his blood-stained scales behind smooth white skin. He buries his jagged horns beneath flocks of shimmering golden hair. Pearly white daggers shine between round pink lips. Between his almond-shaped eyes, blue crystals pierce. They call him Arthur, I call him father.’’

After the tragic death of her father, 18-year old Alissa and her mother move to Marrickville to heal their trauma and begin a fresh start. However, Alissa's caramel skin makes her subject to casual racism and suspicion at her posh new school. Secrets surrounding her father's death unfold when she meets Phillip, the boy who watches her from his mansion window.

The Son of the Devil.

 

 

Over the course of 2021, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at Story Factory. Their goal was to produce a fully realised novella. This is one of the novellas produced in these workshops. 

Year of the Novella is one of Story Factory’s most intensive programs. Throughout 2021, a committed group of young writers came to workshops every week – first at Story Factory in Parramatta; then, when the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hit, over Discord. Through these and many other disruptions, the young people in this program continued to write and support each other. This novella was written as part of that project. 

Year of the Novella 2021 was made possible thanks to the support of the McLean Foundation, Nelson Meers Foundation, Key Foundation and Pantera Press Foundation.
