Morvern Callar, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


It is off-season in a remote Highland sea port: twenty-one-year-old Morvern Callar, a low-paid employee in the local supermarket, wakes one morning to find her strange boyfriend has committed suicide and is dead on their kitchen floor.

Morvern's laconic reaction is both intriguing and immoral.

What she does next is even more appalling...Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award.

Review by

Half way through, I wanted her friend to have killed Him (the boyfriend) and with that knowledge frame Morvern for his death, when they fall out.But seemingly there were no repercussions.Her world is fairly alien to me, easier to understand ignoring a dead body than raving on an island. Interesting rather than enjoyable.
