It is off-season in a remote Highland sea port: 21-year-old Morvern Callar, a low-paid employee in the local supermarket, wakes one morning to find her strange boyfriend has committed suicide and is dead on their kitchen floor. Morvern's laconic reaction is both intriguing and immoral. What she does next is even more appalling . . .
Brutal, erotic, jarringly poetic and rich in a blood-dark humour, 'Morvern Callar' was a powerful debut novel which is now a major motion picture.
Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award.
