little scratch

Forfatter: Rebecca Watson Oplæser: Rebecca Watson Lydbog

A unique audiobook experience, written and performed by one of the most talented young authors to have emerged in recent British fiction.


'Extraordinary' New Yorker

little scratch tells the story of a day in the life of an unnamed woman, living in a lower-case world of demarcated fridge shelves and office politics; clock-watching and WhatsApp notifications. In a voice that is fiercely wry, touchingly delicate and increasingly neurotic, the protagonist relays what it takes to get through the quotidian detail of that single trajectory - from morning to night - while processing recent sexual violence.

little scratch is about the coexistence of monotony with our waking, intelligent lives. It is a powerful evocation of how the external and internal aspects of our lives exist in a helix and what it means to live out the course of a single day consumed by trauma.

‘I found myself unable to stop listening' ***** Netgalley reviewer.
