In the bedroom above her immense studio at Burntcoat, the celebrated sculptor Edith Harkness is making her final preparations. The symptoms are well known: her life will draw to an end in the coming days.

Downstairs, the studio is a crucible glowing with memories and desire. It was here, when the first lockdown came, that she brought Halit. The lover she barely knew. A presence from another culture. A doorway into a new and feverish world.

  • 'Sarah Hall makes language shimmer and burn . . . One of the finest writers at work today.' Damon Galgut
  • 'Wonderful . . . The writing goes down smoking hot onto the page.' Andrew Miller
  • 'Transporting . . . A beautiful novel, full of heat and darkness.' Avni Doshi
  • 'I can think of no other British writer whose talent so consistently thrills, surprises and staggers . . . With Burntcoat she has solidified her status as the literary shining light we lesser souls aspire to.'
  • Benjamin Myers
