In this atmospheric and profoundly moving debut, Cathy and Daniel live with their father, John, in the remote woods of Yorkshire, in a house the three of them built themselves. John is a gentle brute of a man, a former enforcer who fights for money when he has to, but who otherwise just wants to be left alone to raise his children. When a local landowner shows up on their doorstep, their precarious existence is threatened, and a series of actions is set in motion that can only end in violence. Steeped in the natural world of northern England, this is a lyrical commentary on the bonds of siblings and fatherhood, and on the meaning of community in the modern world. Elmet marks the launch of a major new voice in literary fiction.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The dialect of northern England is a defining element in Fiona Mozley’s kicker of a first novel…Narrator Joe Jameson gives just enough of that sound to draw the listener into her strange and savage landscape…In an unforgettable match of voice and text, Jameson creates a distinctively accented and nuanced world that is equal and counterpart to Mozley’s unique literary achievement. This memorable match of voice and text is a double pleasure and a work of suspense unlike anything you’ve heard before. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Magical.” People
“A quiet explosion of a book, exquisite and unforgettable.” Economist (London)
“Excellent…Brims with primal, folkloric power.” Wall Street Journal
“A lyrical and mythic work…Mozley’s sheer storytelling confidence sends the reader sailing.” New York Times
