Waterstones Says

Steeped in a sense of ominous dread and rendered in precise, emotionally acute prose, Greengrass follows up the acclaimed Sight with the tale of a small band of individuals preparing for the onset of a slow-moving catastrophe.

Signed Bookplate Edition - with alternative blue cover and exclusive short story

A standard edition is available here.

'Crisis slid from distant threat to imminent probability and we tuned it out like static.'

Francesca is Caro's stepmother, and Pauly's mother. A scientist, she can see what is going to happen.

The high house was once her holiday home; now looked after by locals Grandy and Sally, she has turned it into an ark, for when the time comes. The mill powers the generator; the orchard is carefully pruned; the greenhouse has
all its glass intact. Almost a family, but not quite, they plant, store seed, and watch the weather carefully.

A stunning novel of the extraordinary and the everyday, The High House explores how we get used to change that once seemed unthinkable, how we place the needs of our families against the needs of others - and it asks us who, if we had to, we would save.

“A beautiful book inside and out”

The High House is such an immersive, lyrical read that I was spellbound from start to finish. Jessie's prose is soothing and thoughtful and the detailed descriptions of the setting stayed with me long after I... More
