A winter gem from the greatest living master of the mythopoeic Time place stone sense and language are set into a spiral dance that transports the reader utterly All of Garner s novels are rooted in the urge to know a place so deeply that every fragment of it evokes a dream every object becomes multiplied and reflected through time and space No one else takes the connection between land lore and language further and deeper Every aspiring or working writer should read Garner to see how it can be done

Thursbitch

summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Alan Garner free read ð Thursbitch Alan Garner ¹ 6 free read HERE JOHN TURNER WAS CAST AWAY IN A HEAVY SNOW STORM IN THE NIGHT IN THE YEAR 1755 THE PRINT OF A WOMAN'S SHOE WAS FOUND BY HIS SIDE IN THE SNOW WHERE HE LAY DEADJohn Turner was a packman With his train of horses he carried salt and silk across distances incomprehensible to hi. This is one of those novels that has the potential to polarise readers I discovered Alan Garner last year when I read Red Shift and was in awe of his ability to tell a story Thursbitch also reuires patience and perseverance but the rewards are satisfyingThursbitch is a place that has meaning where the past and present can converge and at times overlap The life of John Turner in 1755 and Sal and Ian s journey in the present time weave together It s a difficult story to describe and I suspect that some readers with be put off by the dialect used and by the abrupt style and deliveryThe kindle version comes in at less than two hundred pages but it s certainly a dense and thought provoking read I feltWell worth the effort IMO time and money well spent

summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Alan Garner free read ð Thursbitch Alan Garner ¹ 6 free read D affects their relationship in the 21st challenging the perceptions they have of themselves and of each other A visionary fable firmly rooted in a verifiable place this novel is an evocation of the lives and the language of all people who are called to the valley of Thursbitc. A somewhat stunning read that makes me wonder if a book can be simultaneously lean and dense The themes are reminiscent of Algernon Blackwood being not uite horror so much as awe and wonder at the world but the prose is utterly stripped down and sparse To be honest I had to stop a third of the way into the book and restart it in order to catch hold of what was going on Definitely recommended
