Checkout 19 by Claire-Louise Bennett


SKU: 9781787333550 Category:

Checkout 19 is a deeply felt, original and devastatingly moving novel from the astonishingly accomplished author of Pond. It follows a young woman who finds herself in love, in conflict with life and death, and in a life made of books, where the act of turning the page is a way of carrying on living. Fearlessly inventive in its form, merging linguistic ingenuity and a searing emotional depth, this book explores class, the notion of freedom, adolescence, transcendence, sexual politics and artistic synthesis.

Bennett’s singular prose ensnares the reader from the off and surprises them at every turn.
