9780099506188: Cryers Hill

In July 1934, Walter Brown went alone to the woodland pond. He saw his girl swimming there. He watched her floating and saw how white her skin was in the green water, her belly, her breasts, her pond-tangled hair. Then she turned over like an otter and dived down. She did not come up again. In July 1969, Sean Matthews finds himself in the very same woodland, where he witnesses an event he later cannot bear to remember. Two boys, growing up in the same village thirty-five years apart, have each seen something they shouldn't.

Hailed by Salman Rushie on the publication of her first novel, Pop, Cryers Hill confirms Kitty Aldridge as a writer of immense talent, possessing the rare gift of enabling us to see the world anew.

Product Description:

In July 1934, Walter Brown went alone to the woodland pond. He saw his girl swimming there. She turned over like an otter and dived down. She did not come up again. In July 1969, Sean Matthews finds himself in the very same woodland, where he witnesses an event he later cannot bear to remember. Both have each seen something they shouldn't.

Review:

"A beautifully written, profoundly moving, observantly funny, deeply English novel by one of the most talented prose writers I have read in years" (Carol Ann Duffy Daily Telegraph)

"Mercurial, deft and wondrous in its sentences and uncanny descriptions...A considerable achievement by a daring writer who's come fully into her own" (Richard Ford)

"Kitty Aldridge's language captures the casual brutality of childhood like a butterfly in a net" ( Independent)

"[An] excellent pastoral novel" (Laura Macauley Time Out)

"Aldridge herself loads the novel with verbal twists and turns that leave its texture as ridged, layered and undulating as the Chilterns themselves" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)
