The sequel to the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted The Unseen

A gifted writer, stylish, laconic and imaginative Paul Owen, TLS

No-one can be alone on an island . . .

But Ingrid is alone on Barroy, the island that bears her name, while the war of her childhood has been replaced by a new more terrible war and Norway is under the Nazi boot.

When the bodies from a bombed troopship begin to wash up on the shore, Ingrid cannot know that one will be alive and warm enough to erase a lifetime of loneliness.

She cannot know what she will suffer in protecting her lover from the Germans and their Norwegian collaborators, nor the journey she will face, wrenched from her island once more, to return home.

Or that, amid the suffering of war, among refugees fleeing famine and scorched-earth retreats, she will be given a gift whose value is beyond measure.

Reviews for The Unseen

Easily among the best books I have ever read Eileen Battersby, Irish Times

The Unseen is a blunt, brilliant book Tom Graham, Guardian

The Unseen is a towering achievement that would be a deserved Booker International winner Charlie Connolly, New European

Translated from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett and Don Shaw
