  • Information


'Humorous, sad and clever... A passionately written meditation on motherhood' Sunday TimesAnna Bennett hasn't slept in months.

She also has an insomniac toddler, a precocious, death-obsessed seven-year-old, and a frequently-absent ecologist husband who has brought them all to a desolate island in the Hebrides so he can count the puffins.

When her son finds a baby's skeleton buried in the garden, Anna must confront the island's troubled past, while finding a way to live with the complex demands of motherhood.

Night Waking is a deeply moving and blackly funny tale from one of the great feminist observers of modern family life. 'Sarah Moss writes the kind of books that are difficult to put down' Louise Welch, Financial Times 'Moss writes marvellously (and often hilariously)' The Times
