Ness Ljudbok115Ladda ned och läs i en ljudboksläsare. Tips på apparBrought to you by Penguin. Eerie, unsettling and hauntingly beautiful - a new collaboration from the bestselling creators of Holloway, Robert Macfarlane and Stanley Donwood. A unique audiobook experience, narrated by Stephen Dillane, set to a bespoke score by composer, Hugh Brunt. Recorded and produced at Abbey Road Studios, London.Somewhere on a salt-and-shingle island, inside a ruined concrete structure known as The Green Chapel, a figure called The Armourer is leading a ritual with terrible intent. But something is coming to stop him.Five more-than-human forms are traversing land, sea and time towards The Green Chapel, moving to the point where they will converge and become Ness. Ness has lichen skin and willow-bones. Ness is made of tidal drift, green moss and deep time. Ness has hagstones for eyes and speaks only in birds. And Ness has come to take this island back.What happens when land comes to life? What would it take for land to need to come to life?Using words, the pair have together made a minor modern myth. Part-novella, part-prose-poem, part-mystery play, in Ness their skills combine to dazzling, troubling effect.Robert Macfarlane is the author of The Lost Words with Jackie Morris, The Old Ways and Underland.
