The Hollow Land

Jane Gardam,

The Hollow Land
 
 
New York Times Notable Book and Whitbread Award Winner: Tales of two boys’ adventures in the English countryside from “an exquisite storyteller” (The Seattle Times).

The barren, beautiful Cumbrian fells provide the bewitching setting for the adventures of Bell and Harry, two children who find enchanting wonder at every turn as they explore the area that Bell’s grandfather calls the hollow land. There are ancient mysteries to explore and uncover, like the case of the Egg Witch, and everyone is curious about the Household Name, a wildly famous Londoner moving into the jewel of the territory, Light Trees Farm. With painterly ease, Jane Gardam’s linked stories are “a buoyant collection” to please old fans and new (Kirkus Reviews).

“Like Mark Twain’s depictions of youth, Gardam demonstrates that the enduring lessons of boyhood and lifelong friendship can delight readers of any age.” —Publishers Weekly

“Gardam will bring immense pleasure to readers who treasure fiction that is intelligent, witty, sophisticated.” —The Washington Post
