ACHUKA Book of the Day 1 Feb 2021
“Dark, demanding and delicious.” KIRKUS
from the author of The Hazel Wood…
A highly anticipated collection of twelve deeply creepy pitch-dark stories each with a gorgeously illustrated lino print title page by Nick Hayes. The story ‘The Clockwork Bride’ is worth the cover price alone. The writing throughout the collection is pitch-perfect, a joy to hear in one’s mind; every sentence an invitation to read aloud. We all need range in our reading but alongside books like this much contemporary young feels insipid. Tales From The Hinterland is a book that deserves to have been published in hardback before being available in paperback.
