Description - Bitterhall: A Novel by Helen McClory

Bitterhall is a story of obsession told between three unreliable narrators. Daniel, O rla and Tom share a flat and narrate the intersections of their lives, from future-world 3D printing technology to the history of the book, to a stolen nineteenth-century diary written by a dashing gentleman who may not be entirely dead. A Hallowe'en party leads to a series of entanglements, variously a longed-for sexual encounter clouded by madness, a betrayal, and a reality-destroying moment of possession.

'Hauntingly delicious.' - Sunday Post

'A dark novel filled with obsession and intrigue.' - Scots Magazine

'A ghostly, shape-shifting novel from a rising Scottish writer...playfully alert to ideas of authenticity, possession and the malleable nature of narrative.' - Daily Mail

'...a true wordsmith and sorcerer who can bend words around her fingers into poetic and fantastic sentences.' - Goodreads

'...snatched, impressionistic chapters [which] can switch between personal reflection and prose poetry - an elegant style which only gains in effectiveness as the haunted, gothic undercurrent of the novel becomes more apparent.' - Herald
