Product description


‘Every story is a ghost story, Bailey tells us. But not every ghost story is as haunting as this one. Nor as luminously written, literate, absorbing, transporting, and all-around excellent. I couldn’t put it down’
Karen Joy Fowler, bestselling author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

‘A resonant tale of literary obsession and a story of old myths rising violently to the surface of an otherwise rational world’

‘Suffocatingly real’

In the Night Wood is a wonder: literary, intriguingly supernatural, and all too human. A must read for anyone who as a child wanted to find a magic wardrobe to explore or a rabbit hole to fall down only to realize as an adult that those whimsical childhood adventures have a darker side’
Molly Tanzer, author of Creatures of Will and Temper

‘A literary puzzle box that deftly mixes the scary, nasty folktales of the 19th century and Daphne du Maurier’s classic Don’t Look Now
Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World
