SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2013

He is quite simply, one of the great writers of our time. Inimitably excellent. A finely written novel. I am glad that I was chosen to be a winner of recieving Harvest on mumsnet.

As late summer steals in the final pearls of barley are gleaned,  a villagecomes under threat. Atrio of outsiders two men and a dangerously magnetic woman – arrives on the woodland borders triggering a series of events that will see Water Thirsk’s village unmade in just seven days the harvest blackened by smoke and fear, cruel punishment meted outto the innocent, and allegations of witchcraft.

But something even darker is at the heart of Walter’s story, and he will be the only man left to tell it.
