Ghost Wall

by Sarah Moss
£12.99   hardback  Granta Books (2018)

Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss 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.

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