Alice Walter: The Medium

‘This is a story of our life, it’s about how we died and learnt to survive, by taking messages for the dead. What do they call us? Medium. The Medium.’

To read ‘The Medium’ is to be submerged in a stream of consciousness populated by uninvited voices from the underworld. Animated, urgent, and brutally propulsive, this cacophony of competing narratives begins to upset the boundary between the living and the dead. ‘The Medium’ is an alchemical novel, shimmering with insight from the depths of a black lake.

‘The Medium’ is published as part of ’Arrhythmia’, a series curated for Book Works by Katrina Palmer.
