The Headland

The Headland

by Abi Curtis
MIT Press / Goldsmiths Press
Paperback, 248 pp.

A dual narrative set in Dungeness in the aftermath of the great storm of 1987 and the not-far future. Dolores develops an intimate emotional relationship with a creature she finds washed up in a piece of driftwood. Decades later Morgan tries to unravel the mysteries of his mother’s past, but to do so he must come to terms with his own origins. The Headland challenges ideas about love and grief, parenthood and belonging, and the very fabric of time.

The book cover evokes a unique sense of place, the weight of grief, the strike of a sudden life-changing event and the bonds of parenthood.
