With its sly, slow-burning jokes and exquisite dialogue, THE HAUNT must count among the season's funniest novels (INDEPENDENT)
She is perceptive and compassionate in her treatment of human folly, with an enviable command of contemporary fiction (LITERARY REVIEW)
Her writing is almost dauntingly fresh - glancing, mercurial, elusive (Adam Mars-Jones)
She is a quietly excellent and very English writer, who believes in fatalism as others believe in action. She deserves to be read and read again. (Anita Brookner.)
Set in 'old forest country' on the tip of Cornwall, The BelleChasse is a seedy, dishevelled and decaying hotel, but like the forest itself, with the germ of the legendary Cornish great forest at its heart, The Haunt is a place that welcomes those with longings, with their own deep-seated, incommunicable fears. There is the elderly couple who have just moved to the country, there to find solace but in fact discovering love of a different kind. The child who is odd and needs a friend. The eccentric painter, the loner whose wife has left him.
With her precise, pithy use of language and clear sense of judgement, A. L.Barker's THE HAUNT is a wholly original novel which picks up a clutch of characters and slowly reveals the very eccentricities that drive them.
'She is a quietly excellent and very English writer, who believes in fatalism as others believe in action. She deserves to be read and read again.' Anita Brookner
