What Was Lost

by Catherine O'Flynn
£8.99   paperback  Tindal Street Press (2007)

What Was Lost by Catherine O Winner of the 2008 Costa Book Awards.

"Part ghost story and part mystery ... an enthralling tale of a little girl lost, wrapped in a portrait of a changing community over two decades. What binds it all together so impressively is O’Flynn’s emotional articulacy, which captures life’s sad, strange absurdities and glosses them with a kind of nobility."
(Observer)
"An exceptional, polyphonic novel of urban disaffection, written with humour and pathos. Kate’s deceptively jaunty diary reveals a consumer-driven society choking on its own loneliness; a ghost story; and an examination of unspeakable loss."
(Guardian)
