During the quiet of lock down, Alan Garner finished a book.

‘Treacle Walker’ is an adult novel that draws on quantum physicist Carlo Rovelli’s premise, ‘Time is ignorance’. It’s a tale of a rag, a bone, a bog, a boy and a donkey stone.

Published on 28th October 2021 by 4th Estate, costing £10, this is available to order from The Blackden Trust bookshop. Every copy sold by our shop benefits the Trust
