Fiona Mozley is a rising star of British contemporary fiction. Her debut novel Elmet is a quiet explosion of a book, exquisite and unforgettable.  This dark fiction about a family living on the outskirts of society is an impressive slice of contemporary noir steeped in Yorkshire legends. Atmospheric and unsettling, Elmet is a lyrical commentary on contemporary society and one family’s precarious place in it, as well as an exploration of how deep the bond between father and child can go.

Longlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize, Elmet confirms Fiona Mozley as one of our most gifted and brilliant novelists.
