Description

In a vast, mysterious house on the cliffs near Dover, the Silver family is reeling from the hole punched into its heart. The twins, Miranda and Eliot, and their father, Luc, are mourning the sudden death of Lily, beloved mother and wife. All is not well with the house, either, which creaks and grumbles and malignly confuses visitors in its mazy rooms, forcing winter apples in the garden when the branches should be bare. Generations of Silver women inhabit its walls, and Miranda, with her new appetite for chalk and her keen sense for spirits, is more attuned to them than she is to her brother and father. When one dark night she vanishes entirely, the survivors are left to tell her story. Miri I conjure you...'Still only 24 - an age at which most would-be novelists are searching for a voice - Oyeyemi is ready to make the transition from wunderkind to established author. Virtuosic' Daily Telegraph 'Superbly atmospheric. The dark tones of Poe in her haunting have also the elasticity of Haruki Marukami's surreal mental landscapes' Independent 'Creeps off the page, crawls up the spine and burrows deep into the reader's paralysed mind' Daily Mail
