The Incarnations

'Mesmerising storytelling' New York Times

A New York Time Notable book of the year 2015

SHORTLISTED FOR THE KIRKUS REVIEW PRIZE 2015

'[A] kaleidoscopically imaginative novel…Barker stitches together an unnervingly perceptive portrait of China and of the enduring influence that its past has on the present' The New Yorker

'A thrilling journey through a thousand years of obsession and betrayal, this is the most extraordinary work of imagination you'll read all year' ADAM JOHNSON, Winner of the PULITZER Prize for Fiction 2013

'A brilliant, mind-expanding, and wildly original novel' CHRIS CLEAVE

'What a ferociously talented writer Susan Barker is. The Incarnations is a hallucinatory ride. Highly recommend' ANNA HOPE

And with each letter, Wang feels the watcher in the shadows growing closer …
