Burntcoat by Sarah Hall

You were the last one here before I closed the door of Burntcoat, before we all shut our doors.

In the bedroom above her immense studio at Burntcoat, the celebrated sculptor Edith Harkness is making her final preparations.  Her life will draw to an end in the coming days.

Downstairs, the studio is a crucible glowing with memories and desire.  It was here, when the first lockdown came, that she brought Halit.  The lover she barely knew.  A presence from another culture.  A doorway into a new and feverish world.

Peer & Press Reviews

I loved and needed this full-throated yell of a novel about female desire, resilience, strangeness and artistic power, about the amplification of that power through suffering, and about the terror and beauty of bodies in extremis.  Nobody writes like Sarah Hall, and here her lucid, vital, extraordinary style is matched perfectly to its subject – it’s an extraordinary work that will stand as a blazing witness to the age that bore it.

Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent

Wonderful.  Sarah Hall manages to infuse a whole novel with the intensity of one of her stories.  The writing goes down smoking hot onto the page.  Above all, it is the feeling of all this coming out of the writer’s depths that makes it so compelling.  This will be among the very best of pandemic books.

Andrew Miller

Sarah Hall makes language shimmer and burn.  She’s not afraid of big themes and has the talent to back up her ambition, but she’s just as good at the intimate and domestic…  One of the finest writers at work today.

Damon Galgut, author of The Promise
