Foyles Notes

Andrew Michael Hurley’s beautiful and evocative writing perfectly captures the bleak wild landscape and the claustrophobia and suspicion of those small remote communities where superstition still holds strong. His characters are treated with care, and the sense of history and tradition that binds them together feels completely authentic. But what really shines is the creeping sense of dread and unease woven throughout, lingering over every word but never feeling heavy-handed. Curling up with this unsettling and atmospheric book as the long winter nights draw in is a must for any literary fiction lover.

Lauren, Charing Cross Road

Synopsis

The second novel from the Costa winning and bestselling author of The LoneyIn the wink of an eye, as quick as a flea,The Devil he jumped from me to thee.And only when the Devil had gone,Did I know that he and I'd been one . . .Every autumn, John Pentecost returns to the farm where he grew up to help gather the sheep down from the moors for the winter. Very little changes in the Endlands, but this year, his grandfather - the Gaffer - has died and John's new wife, Katherine, is accompanying him for the first time.Each year, the Gaffer would redraw the boundary lines of the village, with pen and paper, but also through the remembrance of tales and timeless communal rituals, which keep the sheep safe from the Devil. But as the farmers of the Endlands bury the Gaffer, and prepare to gather the sheep, they begin to wonder whether they've let the Devil in after all . . . **********Praise for Andrew Michael Hurley's The Loney'An amazing piece of fiction' Stephen King'A masterful excursion into terror' Sunday Times'Modern classics in this genre are rare, and instant ones even rarer; The Loney, however, looks as though it may be both' Sunday Telegraph'Nuanced, deliberate and building insensibly from a murmur to a shriek.
