The High House

A novel by

2022 Encore Award (nominee)
2022 Orwell Prize for Political Fiction (nominee)
2021 Costa Book Award for Best Novel (nominee)

A lovely sad book, lovely because of its imperfect but believable characters. Sad because it so accurately recognizes the frailty of our species. In a world which exposes both the human efforts for a common good and the need for humans to identify as individuals this novel reveals with clarity the only thing we can do in the worst of times: to care about each other.

Genre: Literary Fiction
