Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
Written in a lyrical yet spare style, "Black Dirt" explores the guilty silences that bind family members together - and sometimes keep them apart. It is the tale of a father and his family told, like the layering of the earth, in different tones and textures.
