The finest and most disturbing novel so far from the author of "The Dumb House" and "The Mercy Boys."
Twenty-five years ago a rapist stalked the streets of Cambridge and violently attacked young women. These events form the background to this extra-ordinary novel in which a young photographer must examine his relations with women, with other men and with his family at home.

"The Locust Room is a dark, tense, exquisitely cruel, painfully tender novel. It intrigues" The Times "A subtle, finely observed mediation on male relationships" Daily Mail "The Locust Room is thoughtful, provocative in the best sense, and ultimately moving. It is Burnside at this best. And that is very good indeed" Glasgow HeraldFrom the Publisher:
Burnside’s finest – and most disturbing – novel since The Dumb House.
