Adam Thorpe’s Ulverton

The next book for the online discussion group #storypast is Adam Thorpe’s Ulverton (1992), an extraordinary novel about an English village, told over three hundred years by twelve of its inhabitants.

We’ll be discussing the novel on twitter via our hashtag #storypast on Thursday 3 November, 1-2pm GMT but you can use the hashtag before then if you want to share your thoughts as you read the novel.

To kickstart our discussion, here is Laura Sangha’s brilliantly fictional review of Ulverton that inspired us to choose the novel for #storypast. First posted at the wonderful Many-Headed Monster Blog, Laura’s inventive review captures the creative and experimental approach to historical writing that we are exploring at #storypast.
