Biographical note:

Jason Hewitt was born in Oxford and lives in London. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and English from the University of Winchester and a MA with distinction in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University. After completing his degree he spent a number of years working in a bookshop in Oxford before moving into the publishing industry where he worked primarily as a Marketing Manager in a number of professional and academic publishers. He is also a playwright and actor, and his first written play will be performed later this year. THE DYNAMITE ROOM is his first novel.

Main description:

A young English girl is held captive in her house by a German soldier in this thrilling debut novel about the personal impact of war

It's July 1940, and 11-year-old Lydia has just run away from life as a child evacuee in Wales to return home. Finding her English village abandoned, she breaks into her family's boarded-up house to wait for their return. But inside she discovers a wounded German soldier with a gun -- he says he won't hurt her, but he won't let her leave the house.

Trapped in the claustrophobic confines of the house, Lydia slowly realizes that this soldier knows too much about her and her family, and that he's plotting something for them both.

The Dynamite Room shrinks the global theater of history's most devastating war to a game of cat and mouse played out in a single house; the result is a moving portrait of war and how it affects soldiers and citizens alike.

Review quote:

"An effective psychological drama between two extraordinary characters. Claustrophobic, touching, character-driven, and told in lovely prose...Readers who loved The Boy in the Striped Pajamas will have a strong affinity with The Dynamite Room."--Katie Ward, author of Girl Reading

Review quote:

"Clever and unsettling, this most unconventional of war stories had me totally gripped."--Shelley Harris, author of Jubilee

Review quote:

"Superb. Absorbing, suspenseful and with a beautifully poetic touch."--Nathan Filer, author of the Costa Award-winning The Shock of the Fall

Review quote:

Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize

PRAISE FOR THE DYNAMITE ROOM:

"Suspenseful and powerful. A novel of great humanity that exposes the absurd contradictions of war."--Samantha Harvey, author of the Orange shortlisted/Booker longlisted The Wilderness
