book

My first whole book, Folk, is published by Bloomsbury in February 2018.

Folk is a novel, of sorts. You might call it a novel-in-stories, or a tour of an imaginary world and its denizens. It is set on Neverness, an island out of our time and space, where folk tales are as real the landscape, and can enchant and hurt in equal measure. In it, real people's lives collide with the folkloric in the form of water bulls, ghosts in the gorse, fortune-telling beasts and hallucinogenic rituals, amongst other strange things...

You can read more about it on my website, zoegilbert.com, which includes information about events I'll be doing to talk about it. If you'd like to order a copy, click here
