Book of the Week: Larchfield

A beautiful and haunting novel which centres on human bravery and imagination. Winner of the MsLexia Prize, Larchfield is the debut novel from writer and award-winning poet Polly Clark. It follows the life of Dora Fielding, a young poet who struggles with isolation and sanity, interwoven with the story of the young poet, W.H. Auden.

"so immensely readable"

"Larchfield is that rarest of rare first novels - a book that actually achieves its great ambition. I found it so immensely readable; it's brainy, verbally acute and knowing, with an ingenious literary historical premise that it impressively (and artfully) carries off right in front of your eyes. It's work of considerable talent" - Richard Ford

    "The sense of danger hanging over the characters kept me reading until past midnight" - Marina Lewycka
