Words Of Love And Hate: Misogyny Vs. Female Empowerment Evie Wyld: The Bass Rock

A rocky island casts its shadow over the mainland and its inhabitants for centuries. Against this backdrop, Evie Wyld’s feminist ghost story, »The Bass Rock«, reveals a dark tale of several generations of women in distress and the strange happenings in a house on the Scottish coast. »Balancing a superbly controlled sense of dread with fierce anger, Wyld’s intense novel is one that will get under your skin and stay there.« [Tatler] The novel earned Wyld the prestigious Stella Prize for literature written by women from Australia.
