The Hollow House

(2001)
A novel by

 
A gothic tale of dark longings and fragile fantasies 'I used to look across the street from my window through the windows of others, but none faced me directly so I could never see more than thin slices of rooms. People appeared from time to time, like pearl divers, briefly coming back to the surface for a breath of air...I was in love with life after dinner, beyond windows that weren't mine, of people I didn't know' As a young man drives hard through the night to reach the sea, he is stopped by the harsh wind and by a Bed and Breakfast perched on the hill above a village, isolated and sheltering itself from the elements. His arrival brings a glaring light to the houses on the shore and upsets forever the rhythmic balance of the fishermen's lives. What has happened to the young woman? Why do all the fishermen regard the young man with such suspicion? Why did she leave the village so suddenly and apparently without explanation? The Hollow House is an unsetting and startlingly original debut.
