The Pursuit of William Abbey

Claire North

‘I was cursed in Natal, in 1884. I stood by as a boy was beaten to death by a mob. His mother cursed us all by truth and by blood, but the shadow took to me, and we have been together since.’

The Pursuit of William Abbey is the extraordinary story of an English doctor cursed by the mother of a dying boy. Exploring themes of colonialism and guilt, Claire North’s moving, thought-provoking and utterly gripping new novel proves again that she is one of the most original and innovative voices in modern fiction.
