Lost River, 1918

"Lost River is an extraordinary work of art. It is a story of death and rebirth, borrowing from myth and fairy tale, but also conjuring up texts from Frankenstein to Dracula, from Southern Gothic to Magical Realism. Yet it remains entirely itself, not quite like anything else I've read. The prose is rich and delicate, the characters memorable, the story immersive. It has the feel of an instant classic." -- Anthony McGowan 2021 Judge of The Leapfrog Press Global Young Adult Fiction Prize
