A beautifully written coming-of-age novel nominated for the 2017 CILIP Carnegie Prize from an acclaimed literary voice. A lost boy. A dead girl, and one who is left behind. A village full of whispers and secrets. When the white hare appears, magical and fleet in the silvery moonlight, she leads them all into a legend, a chase. But who is the hunter and who the hunted? ‘There’s magic in Michael Fishwick’s The White Hare, a haunting story of a troubled London teenager [and] a tender reflection on father-son relationships’ EVENING STANDARD. ‘Finely tuned prose, a rich sense of place, magical folklore elements, multi-dimensional characters, and a well-paced plot create a suspenseful contemporary tale of grief, retribution, and healing’ KIRKUS, Starred Review. ‘Myth, mystery, love and loss collide in an utterly gripping, deeply atmospheric, coming-of-age novel’ THE BOOKSELLER.
