Description

'Like nothing I have read before... stayed with me all summer... It deserves to [put her] on to the prize podiums.' The Times

'Moss has quietly... been putting out some of the most interesting and carefully sculpted novels of recent years... Ghost Wall... is her best novel yet' Financial Times

'Ghost Wall is a burnished gem of a book, brief and brilliant, and with it Moss's star is firmly in the ascendant' Guardian

'...one of our very best contemporary novelists. How she hasn't been nominated for the Man Booker Prize continues to mystify me' The Independent

'one of the finest contemporary writers working in Britain today' Stylist

'Is Sarah Moss the best British writer never nominated for the Booker? ... as brief and unsettling as a bolt of lightning... pins us to the page with creeping menace' Daily Mail

'Amazing... disturbing and touching' Maggie O'Farrell in The Times

'An instant classic' Emma Donoghue

'This book ratcheted the breath out of me so skilfully, that as soon as I'd finished, the only thing I wanted was to read it again.' Jessie Burton

Teenage Silvie and her parents are living in a hut in Northumberland as an exercise in experimental archaeology. Her father is a difficult man, obsessed with imagining and enacting the harshness of Iron Age life. Haunting Silvie's narrative is the story of a bog girl, a young woman sacrificed by those closest to her, and the landscape both keeps and reveals the secrets of past violence and ritual as the summer builds to its harrowing climax.
