Christopher Priest recommends
thumb
Witchwater Country (1986)
Garry Kilworth
"[His] finest novel to date, a book about growing up in semi-rural England. A novel with shifting levels of alienness and normality, it dwells on the macabre internal world of adolescence while reminding us of its ordinariness."
