About Book

LONGLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2019

‘A wonderfully eerie, tragic read. I read it with my heart in my mouth.’ Anna Burns, Man Booker Prize-winning author of Milkman

‘A captivating tale about secrets, repression and the falsity of history.’ Guardian Books of the Year

Late 1944: two teenagers dance the Vogue in silence on the floor of the Pirnmill Aerodrome. She is the minister’s daughter and should be at home; he loses the bet they make that night.

Decades later, a ghost returns to Morne to identify a body found in the shifting sands. Names have long since changed and children long since cast out, but some things refuse to be forgotten.

Set against an eerie coastal landscape awash with secrets, The Vogue is an unforgettable novel of ghosts, lies and vengeance.
