“Ghostways holds a hagstone up to landscape, and shows the skulls beneath its skin.”
A stunning work in two halves.
Ness reads like an epic narrative poem of old, looking through time at a place's past lives, as nature claims it back.
Holloway follows one of the old paths of Britain, a part of landscape trodden into a groove by centuries of use, and the feeling of stepping back in time it evokes.
These two tales are poetic and evocative, and this is only heightened by the amazing artwork of Stanley Donwood. A gem. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
