The winner of the 2020 Costa Book of the Year 2020.
The judges said the book was "utterly original – unlike anything we’ve ever read – and feels like a classic in the making from a writer at the height of her powers".
“It’s a book that will take you to the furthest reaches of your imagination – we found it completely compelling. The Mermaid of Black Conch is an extraordinary, beautifully written book – full of mythic energy and unforgettable characters, including some tremendously transgressive women.”
