Description

En más de una ocasión, me dio la sensación de que la autora daba por hecho que teníamos que saber ciertos detalles de antemano. I wasn't expecting this book to be so heartwrenching; there were several passages that were hard to read and others that made my blood boil. The author masterfully demonstrates how the injustices women face today are just in a different form from those women had to face 500 years ago. A Granta Best of Young British Novelist (once-in-a-decade-accolade), Scottish Novelist of the Year (2016), Pushchart nominated, on lists for BBC International Short Story Prize, Impac Dublin, The Sunday Times Short Story Award, Encore, among others.

Jenni was selected as one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists after the publication of her debut novel, The Panopticon, which was shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and the James Tait Black Prize. Its bearing Witness to the death of Geilles Duncan who was hanged as a witch at the tender age of 15 in 1591 and also to all other women who were and still are being persecuted just for being a women. This is the story of Hex by Jenni Fagan, the new volume in Polygon’s Darkland Tales series, which is coming in March 2022. Nevertheless, the reality of what happened the night that Janet Cornfoot was lynched at Pittenweem is hard to grasp as one.Luckenbooth is a bold, haunting and dazzlingly unique novel about the stories and secrets we leave behind, and the places that hold them long after we are gone. This is a book that perfectly demonstrates how generations of women still have so much to change in the world and everything in common centuries apart. Separated by centuries they may be, these women present a sad realisation that there is still much to connect their situations.

This is the first book by Jenni Fagan that I have read but I am already looking forward to diving into some more of her work, as well as looking forward to finding out a bit more about Scotland’s history in future Darkland Tales books.

This book is based on a really interesting concept - of historic Scottish tales retold or readdressed - and a female focused story that I thought would grip me. This certainly rings true and, of course, we must be on guard against all such ‘thought plagues’ that exist today.The curse creeps up the nine floors and an enraged spirit world swells to the surface, desperate for the true horror of the building's longest kept secret to be heard.
