Description

‘A magic portrayal of modern life in the peripheries’ Amy Liptrot, author of The Outrun
‘Full of insight, empathy and wry laughter’ M John Harrison, author of Nova Swing

Out walking Ada Robinson’s dog while his wife drinks herself into a forgetful fug, Harry Maiden discovers an intricate system of caves beneath the wind turbines. Over at the Woolpack one night, Rosco re-encounters friendships he thought he’d left behind at the Stubbins paper mill. Mad old Gos leads a mysterious treasure hunt to the Bronze Age burial site at Whitelow Cairn.

This is the Hollow in the Land: a corner of England teeming with mystery and intrigue and filled with real, flesh-and-blood characters, each of them at a different point along life’s journey through childhood hopefulness, faded first love and middle-aged disillusionment. Hollow in the Land uncovers the small everyday mysteries of their lives – and ours.

‘A beautifully melancholy and worldly book. Clarke’s characters may lead quiet, thwarted lives but his prose is generous and electrifying, unjudgmental and assured. A brilliant new talent’ Colin Barrett, author of Young Skins
