A captivating, magical and haunting debut novel of breathtaking imagination, from the winner of the 2014 Costa Short Story Award.

The remote island village of Neverness is a world far from our time and place. The air hangs rich with the coconut-scent of gorse and the salty bite of the sea. Harsh winds scour the rocky coastline. The villagers' lives are inseparable from nature and its enchantments. Verlyn Webbe, born with a wing for an arm, unfurls his feathers in defiance of past shame; Plum is snatched by a water bull and dragged to his lair; little Crab Skerry takes his first run through the gorse-maze; Madden sleepwalks through violent storms, haunted by horses and her father's wishes. As the tales of this island community interweave over the course of a generation, their earthy desires, resentments, idle gossip and painful losses create a staggeringly original world. Crackling with echoes of ancient folklore, but entirely, wonderfully, her own, Zoe Gilbert's Folk is a dark, beautiful and intoxicating debut.

'An extraordinary debut novel . It feels both ancient – drawing on deep seams of myth and folklore - and strikingly contemporary.'
The Financial Times

'Folk is a special book: immersive and dripping with life ... It reads like a dream that, once visited, is difficult to leave behind.'
The Guardian

'Dazzling and unsettling, much like the best and darkest of fairy tales.'
The Times Literary Supplement

'That rare thing: genuinely unique. It's part-myth, part-allegory, wholly wonderful.'
The Observer
