Night Waking



'Humorous, sad and clever... A passionately written meditation on motherhood' Sunday Times

Anna Bennett hasn't slept in months. She also has an insomniac toddler, a precocious, death-obsessed seven-year-old, and a frequently-absent ecologist husband who has brought them all to a desolate island in the Hebrides so he can count the puffins.

When her son finds a baby's skeleton buried in the garden, Anna must confront the island's troubled past, while finding a way to live with the complex demands of motherhood. Night Waking is a deeply moving and blackly funny tale from one of the great feminist observers of modern family life.
