About the Author

Alan Garner was born and still lives in Cheshire, an area which has had a profound effect on his writing and provided the seed of many ideas worked out in his books. His fourth book, 'The Owl Service' brought Alan Garner to everyone's attention. It won two important literary prizes - The Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal - and was made into a serial by Granada Television. It has established itself as a classic and Alan Garner as a writer of great distinction.


"!A rare imaginative feat and the taste that it leaves is haunting." The Observer "This book is a superb piece of architecture in which every detail plays its proper part." Growing Point "Alan Garner's The Owl Service is not meant only for children or anyone else; it's a novel; and not many better novels will be published this year!The power grows, throbs nearer, builds to unbearable tension, and comes to wild release in the last few pages." The Guardian
