.. And three makes a hat-trick! Yet another of our favourite writers will be visiting Mr B’s bibliotherapy room this Spring.
With her lyrical, magical prose, Kirsty Logan reigns supreme on both of Emma and Amy’s top author lists. Her 2015 debut novel “The Gracekeepers” – an eerie, beautifully-described story about hope at the end of the world, complete with a floating circus – earned her her first invitation to a Mr B’s event. Now, we’re thrilled to welcome Kirsty back to Bath to introduce her fairy tale-inspired prequel to “The Gracekeepers”.
Set in the same watery world as her debut, “The Gloaming” introduces us to Mara, a haunted young woman living on a dark enchanted island. Mara knows her fate is sealed. She will end her days atop a cliff, turned to stone and gazing out at the horizon, like all the villagers before her. But with the arrival of newcomer Pearl, Mara sees her destiny shift. Suddenly the future seems different from anything she could ever have imagined.
“The Gloaming” is rich with folklore and mythology, written in effortless, graceful prose, and we are thrilled to be able to introduce you to its talented young author.
