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.
When you visit Blackden you can browse around our small shop and purchase books written by and about the authors who have lived and worked here. You can buy reproduction ceramics based on the sherds found in the garden and surrounding fields, made by potter John Hudson and you can purchase postcards of the tremendous photography of David Heke who took many of the photographs on this website.
We hope you will visit us and take home a memory of your day. In the meantime you could consider making a book purchase from our online shop. We do urge you to purchase from The Blackden Trust website rather than elsewhere as all profits from books sold in this way are donated to The Blackden Trust.
