Bitterhall: A Novel
"Bitterhall is a story of obsession told between three unreliable narrators. In a darkening season in a northern city, Daniel, Orla and Tom 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. An interwar-themed 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. Bitterhall reveals the ways in which our subjectivity tampers with the notion of an objective reality, and delves into how we represent - and understand - our muddled, haunted selves."--Provided by publisher.
