Starve Acre: A Journey into English Folk Horror with Andrew Michael Hurley

Thursday 31st October 2019 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Explore the occult possibilities of the English landscape with Andrew Michael Hurley—author of Costa First Novel Award-winning The Loney—as he joins us on Halloween evening to read from his highly-anticipated new horror novel Starve Acre.

Taking us behind the scenes of of his disquieting and devastating narrative, Hurley will invite us into Richard and Julie Willoughby’s moorland house—a home left bereft since the recent death of their young son Ewan. Convincing herself that the boy still lives with them somehow, Julie is drawn to a seemingly benevolent group of occultists known as the Beacons, while Richard begins to find a distraction from his grief in a search for a legendary oak tree in a nearby field. Drawing on the recent revival in folk horror, Hurley will reveal the influences that shape his work, and discuss why the search for ‘ghosts’ says more about the modern world than we may wish to admit.

The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
