Morvern Callar

By (author) Alan Warner

It is off-season in a remote Highland sea port: twenty-one-year-old Morvern Callar, a low-paid employee in the local supermarket, wakes one morning to find her strange boyfriend has committed suicide and is dead on their kitchen floor. Morvern’s laconic reaction is both intriguing and immoral. What she does next is even more appalling…Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award.
