Ten White Geese

A novel by

The eagerly anticipated, internationally bestselling new novel by the winner of the world's richest literary prize for a single work of fiction

A woman rents a remote farm in rural Wales. She says her name is Emilie. An Emily Dickinson scholar, she has fled Amsterdam, having just confessed to an affair. On the farm she finds ten geese. One by one they disappear. Who is this woman? Will her husband manage to find her? The young man who stays the night: why won't he leave? And the vanishing geese?

Set against a stark and pristine landscape, and with a seductive blend of solace and menace, this novel of stealth intrigue summons from a woman's silent longing fugitive moments of profound beauty and compassion.
