Sarah Hall joins Alex Clark for our monthly Book Club to discuss her wonderful novel, Burntcoat.

‘A dark and brilliant novel about love, art, and fragility in a time of crisis.’ – Sarah Moss

Edith Harkness, the celebrated sculptor, is making her final preparations; her life will draw to an end in the coming days.

Downstairs, her studio, Burntcoat, is glowing with memories and desire. It was here, when the first lockdown came, that she brought Halit. The lover she barely knew. A presence from another culture. A doorwary into a new and feverish world.

The story of two new lovers confined, Burntcoat is a sublime and scorching experience which no reader will forget.
