Waterstones Says

Doing for coronavirus what Summerwater did for Brexit, Moss’ blazing novel of the state of the nation during the pandemic is characteristically wise, witty and emotionally engaging.

At dusk on a November evening in 2020 a woman slips out of her garden gate and turns up the hill. Kate is in the middle of a two week quarantine period, but she just can't take it anymore - the closeness of the air in her small house, the confinement. And anyway, the moor will be deserted at this time. Nobody need ever know.

But Kate's neighbour Alice sees her leaving and Matt, Kate's son, soon realizes she's missing. And Kate, who planned only a quick solitary walk - a breath of open air - falls and badly injures herself. What began as a furtive walk has turned into a mountain rescue operation...

Unbearably suspenseful, witty and wise, The Fell asks probing questions about the place the world has become since March 2020, and the place it was before. Sarah Moss's novel is a story about compassion and kindness and what we must do to survive, and it will move you to tears.

Sarah Moss is arguably the best British novelist writing today and improbably one of the most overlooked and least celebrated of the new women's voices, whose previous novels The Tidal Zone, Ghost Wall,... More
