Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Weigall Lindsay( Book )

133 editions published between 1967 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A 50th-anniversary edition of the haunting novel about the disappearance of three boarding school girls that inspired the acclaimed 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"--
