About this product
- DescriptionWinner of the Somerset Maugham AwardOne of Granta's Best Young British NovelistsFrom the acclaimed author of Boy, Sw, Bird There's something strange about the Silver family house in the closed-off town of Dover, England. Grand and caverus with hidden passages and buried secrets, it's been home to four generations of Silver women--Anna, Jennifer, Lily, and w Miranda, who has lived in the house with her twin brother, Eliot, ever since their father converted it to a bed-and-breakfast. The Silver women have always had a strong connection, a pull over one ather that reaches across time and space, and when Lily, Miranda's mother, passes away suddenly while on a trip abroad, Miranda begins suffering strange ailments. An eating disorder starves her. She begins hearing voices. When she brings a friend home, Dover's hostility toward outsiders physically manifests within the four walls of the Silver house, and the lives of everyone inside are irrevocably changed. At once an unforgettable mystery and a meditation on race, nationality, and family legacies, White is for Witching is a boldly original, terrifying, and elegant vel by a prodigious talent.
