A dozen accounts, narrated by a dozen different voices, tell the story of Ulverton, a fictional village on the Wessex Downs, through its generations. Based on a bedrock of folktales, myth and oral tradition, the author builds layers of new narrative, often using dialect or the true demotic voice.

Genre: General Fiction
