A wonderful excavation of the story traditions that our ancestors huddled around for warmth... highly recommended'Alan Moore, author of WatchmenThis is a book like no other: a magical tapestry of folk tales, woven together to build a world that is as strange yet familiar as a half-remembered dream. It is an old world, a world of enchanted corn dollies and wild dances in poppy fields, a world of tricksters, lovers and fools.Through this world, Greychild must journey in search of his mother: from the village of Brunt Boggart, down to the treacherous Pedlar Man's track, all the way to the distant Arleccra, a city of treasures and temptation. If you follow him, a part of you will never come back.David Greygoose was born near Northampton and now lives on the edge of Liverpool.
