Burntcoat

by Sarah Hall - £8.99  Faber & Faber (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571329342 | ISBN 10: 0571329349

In the bedroom above her immense studio at Burntcoat, the celebrated sculptor Edith Harkness is making her final preparations. The symptoms are well known: her life will draw to an end in the coming days.
 
Downstairs, the studio is a crucible glowing with memories and desire. It was here, when the first lockdown came, that she brought Halit. The lover she barely knew. A presence from another culture. A doorway into a new and feverish world.

"Transporting... A beautiful novel, full of heat and darkness"
(Avni Doshi)
"I can think of no other British writer whose talent so consistently thrills, surprises and staggers... With Burntcoat she has solidified her status as the literary shining light we lesser souls aspire to"
(Benjamin Myers)
