Folk – Zoe Gilbert
On a remote and unforgiving island lies a village unlike any other: Neverness. A girl is snatched by a water bull and dragged to its lair, a babe is born with a wing for an arm and children ask their fortunes of an oracle ox. While the villagers live out their own tales, enchantment always lurks, blighting and blessing in equal measure.
Folk is a dark and sinuous debut circling the lives of one generation. In this world far from our time and place, the stories of the islanders interweave and overlap, their own folklore twisting fates and changing lives.
A captivating, magical and haunting debut novel of breathtaking imagination, from the winner of the 2014 Costa Short Story Award.
Why I Can’t Wait:
The cover of this book is so beautiful that I wanted it as soon as I saw it on Goldsboro Books. I planned to preorder it but luckily it’s going to be the March Book of the Month. It sounds like a dark and twisting tale, which I’m sure to love.
